OptionsCity Spreads Holiday Cheer

We all know how stressful the holiday season can be but having a loved one in the hospital can make it that much more draining. To help these families in need, we at OptionsCity decided to give back to the community this year by holding an office wide Holiday Gift Drive for the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. Standing in our office lobby is an 8 foot Christmas tree decorated with silver snowflakes and orange flowers, staying true to our OptionsCity colors. This year, the tree was also covered with paper tags. Written on each tag was a description of a gift from the hospital’s holiday Wish List. For two weeks, employees were able to choose a tag and fulfill a child’s wish. Items purchased included board games, coloring books, and art supplies amongst others. Christy Haras, HR manager, was first to choose a tag and donate a stylish nail polish kit to the Gift Drive.
