Protecting Our Future: TMG Cares “Elf Squad” Delivers Gifts to Foster Children

No matter what you have heard, 2020 wasn't all bad. This year, TMG Cares has brightened the holidays of 13 foster children in the Portland/Vancouver Area. We partnered with Bridge the Gap to identify foster children for the Vancouver Office to sponsor. Project 48 is the partner for the Portland Office. Both are community outreach programs designed to enrich the lives of abused and neglected children.

Our employees contributed 22 hours to help with the shopping, packaging and delivering of the gifts. Overall, we had tons of support from both offices, and even got to have TMG Maintenance play Santa and deliver some of the gifts!

Thank you to all of the employees who helped with the shopping. Everyone was so thoughtful in the items they selected. There definitely was a sense of pride in wanting to create a special Christmas for our sponsored children. We were able to provide everything from practical items like coats, shoes, and toiletries to fun items like toys, cameras, and wireless headphones.

A heartfelt THANK YOU to all of the TMG and AMS employees who gave a little bit of their time this holiday season!

Thank you for all that you guys did. The children were very excited about their gifts. I think the one picture that captured it perfectly, was her tossing the tissue up in the air. Her little giggles were priceless. One little girl even asked if these are gifts that she got to keep.

I’m so glad that TMG provided us with the opportunity to do something so meaningful, especially during work hours. It makes me feel like they care about the community and the more important things, at least to me, in life. I really felt that participating in this gave me the chance to really reflect on the holiday season and the year as a whole, and allowed me to think of others outside of myself and their circumstances.

This year has been rough on everyone and I really enjoyed having a moment where my only focus was, “How do I make this kid’s Christmas as awesome as possible?
