Adopt-a-Client Program Brings Christmas Cheer
The TECH Adopt-a-Client Program started as a way to ensure that all of those served by TECH have something under the tree at Christmas time. Each year, a wish list is compiled with the help of our staff for each person that we hope to have “adopted out.” Many of the wish list items are essentials such as pillows, blankets, clothing, socks and shoes. However, there are always some fun requests such as bowling balls, Chiefs gear and DVD’s. Angela Penner, Director of Services for TECH, says “This program is in place to provide the same experience for everyone at our residential houses and ensures everyone’s needs are met.”
Our 2021 Adopt-a-Client Program provided gifts under the tree for 35 people served by TECH with many of those individuals being adopted out by local companies and supporters of TECH. Mary Wilson with Steven Wilson, DDS, coordinated the adoption of several people’s wish lists through her office staff. She said, “We have adopted families for Christmas in the past but this year it was so much fun for each of our team members to select an individual TECH client.” She went on to say, “The whole office team was excited to help, more than in years past. Somehow the experience feels extra positive – very uplifting.” Thank you to our donors and TECH family for helping make Christmas a little brighter this year!
