Holiday Giving Roundup

This time of year, there are so many easy ways to give back. Help an elderly neighbor shovel the driveway once the snow hits. Start a chain of random acts of kindness by paying for the coffee order of the stranger in the car behind you in the drive-through. Or give back on a bigger scale through an office-wide effort. One of our traditions at Foundry is participating in the Boys and Girls Club’s Adopt-A-Family program. We also love getting the chance to help our clients help the community.

Fun job: Adam Carter (web, social media) helped Ryan Dolan of Dolan Automotive Group pick out 100 toys for ToysForTots last year.

We’re continually amazed by our clients and the way they give back. Read on for just a couple of our favorite holiday giving opportunities.

Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows

Adopt-A-Family program

Businesses, families, and others can adopt a family that is asking for assistance during these difficult economic times. The Boys & Girls Club is hoping to match more than 100 families – 400 children – with generous community members. Adopt-A-Family wish list items range from toys and clothes to food baskets and school supplies and family sizes vary from small to large. For details on the Adopt-A-Family program and other ways to help this holiday season, check out the Boys and Girls Club calendar.

Dolan Automotive Group

Camp Christmas Toy Drive

Dolan Automotive Group has again partnered with Toys for Tots and the U.S. Marine Corps to provide toys for children who risk going without this holiday season. Take part in the annual Camp Christmas toy drive by bringing unwrapped toys to any of Dolan’s area dealerships including Reno Toyota, Reno Scion, Lexus of Reno and Reno Mazda Kia through Saturday, Dec. 15 when the official Camp Christmas event takes place at Reno Toyota on Kietzke Lane.

There’s no shortage of ways to give back in Northern Nevada. Stuff a stocking for local children in need, be “Santa” to a soldier or senior, serve Christmas Day meals and much more. Check out this list for more holiday giving ideas.
