Spreading Christmas joy at TECH

Spreading Christmas joy at TECH

On behalf of TECH, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to TECH staff and our community for their participation in our 2016 Adopt-a-Client program. Because of you, so many of our clients woke up on Christmas morning with gifts under their tree and full hearts!

For two weeks, gifts came pouring in to our TECH offices. From there, elves spent their days wrapping gifts, making sure every bow was tied just right and the gift tags sparkled! The sleigh left the building the week of Christmas, making stops at all of our residential houses, delivering not only wrapped presents but also Christmas joy.

Year after year, we are overwhelmed by the support from our staff and community for this program. $1075 in donations came in to help assist with shopping. Over 44 clients were adopted this year, receiving gifts above and beyond their request for necessities.  Items such as coats, shoes, slippers and sweaters were on the wish lists of many of our clients and thanks to you, they found them under their trees on Christmas morning. In addition to the abundance of gifts, KASH (Kroger Accounting Services Hutchinson) adopted two residential houses and spent the week caroling, making meals and delivering gifts to residents.

It is truly heartwarming to see how something so simple can bring so much joy to another person’s life.  Thanks to the community and TECH staff, our clients had an unforgettable Christmas. As we get ready to embark on a new year, we hope you are enjoying time with your families and celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
