At LEM Products, Inc., we are committed to giving back to our local community. This year, with so many of our neighbors struggling in these challenging times, taking the opportunity to spread some holiday cheer is more important than ever.
Thanksgiving Festivities in 2020
Typically, during the week of Thanksgiving, our team would normally hold a holiday luncheon. However, in order to continue to practice social distancing, we did something a little different this year. Instead, we held a silent auction that focused on holiday gifts. Not only did our staff get to bid on some toys and get a jump start on their holiday shopping, but all of the proceeds from the auction were donated to the local organization, Tons of Turkeys.
Helping Families Celebrate an American Tradition
Tons of Turkeys, as suggested by their name, has a mission to donate turkeys to underprivileged families, so that they can enjoy a true holiday feast. The Warther family began this tradition of donating turkeys in 2009, when they brought 100 turkeys to Philadbundance, the largest hunger relief organization in the Delaware Valley. This year, their goal was to donate 4,000 turkeys to local charities in the Philadelphia and Chester County areas and feed just as many families. We hope that our contribution was able to help them accomplish their mission.
The turkey is the star of any Thanksgiving meal. More than just feeding families, it also represents a sense of normalcy in a year that has been anything but.
The Spirit of Giving Continues
After our silent auction concluded, there were still some toys remaining. Our landlord, Nappen & Associates, decided that they wanted to contribute to our spirit of giving this holiday season, and they are running a collection drive for Toys for Tots. Our team sent the leftover toys to their drive so that they can help spread some cheer to the children in our community.
