In 2020, we were honored to work with Valley Outreach of Stillwater as our charitable partner. As the challenges of 2020 unfolded with a pandemic and civil unrest, the need for resources in our community grew. With a mission of helping people move their lives forward through basic needs services and personalized support, Valley Outreach was experiencing an increased level of demand. Together, our team and our amazing clients came forward to help Valley Outreach and those hurting in our community.
Although we had to cancel our long-standing, in-person holiday party, we, like so many others, pivoted to a new model. With a goal of celebrating our clients while simultaneously helping our community, we launched the 3 Days of Thanks & Giving event. For three days, clients were safely welcomed to our office to receive the gift of a freshly baked pie. Clients and friends were invited to help support Valley Outreach of Stillwater at the same time.
The results were nothing short of amazing. Together, we collected over 600 pounds of food and $8,355. Our donations and gifts immediately went to work, helping Valley Outreach fulfill their mission. We are profoundly grateful to everyone who participated to make this event a success. In a year with so much sadness and hardship, it was truly beautiful to see our community come together in goodness
