The holiday season is among us, and in the spirt of giving iMedia has teamed up with Cornerstone Family Programs to participate in Hope for the Holiday. For the fourth consecutive year, iMedia has worked with the organization to spread holiday cheer to make a family’s holiday brighter.
Hope for the Holiday is Cornerstone’s signature holiday gift giving program. Starting with Thanksgiving and throughout the rest of the holiday season, the program collects food, clothing, coats, toiletries, supermarket gift certificates, and much more for individuals and families in need.
The iMedia staff went shopping as a team, picking out gifts that perfectly matched the family’s holiday wish list. iMedia’s Interactive Sales Manager, Christian DeLalla, explains:
“Being able to make the holidays a little warmer and a little brighter for those in need, helps to remind me of what this time of the year is all about. I can only imagine the difficulties and hardships these families are under especially during this time of the year. It’s rewarding to be part of a team that comes together to do something to truly make a difference in someone’s life.”
Then, the company came back to the office where a wrapping party began. First sorting through all the purchases to ensure everyone received the correct gifts, next packing gift boxes and wrapping them in holiday themed gift paper- Nicole Miller, iMedia’s Support Coordination Specialist described it as a “rewarding” day. “Knowing what a difference this will be making in a family’s holiday, really puts things into perspective.”
