Decking the halls. Roasting chestnuts on an open fire. Caroling through the night.
Holiday traditions all, but none resonates with the employees of Phillips Office Solutions quite like adopting area families at Christmas. It is something that family-owned Phillips has done for more than a decade.
Phillips this year raised $1,700 in order to provide toys, clothing and food to two families this holiday season.
Linda, who works in Phillips’ credit and collections department, shopped for the families on two Saturdays in December. A group of employees then wrapped the presents at Phillips’ headquarters in Middletown.
Many other Phillips employees got involved via two primary fundraisers, paying $5 each time they participated in a series of blue-jeans workdays and a number of fall soup lunches.
