Here at work, even as we are preparing for our own Thanksgiving celebrations, we've also started collecting for our usual holiday charities. We've collected money and food for five families so they can have a good Thanksgiving dinner. Next on our plate is Christmas. We are sponsoring one needy family. It's a single mom or rather aunt taking care of six kids. We are collecting enough to buy their Christmas presents and hopefully a little extra for food and something for mom too. We are also donating to the animal shelter and sending care packages to several military men and women who are connected to our organization. So you see, there is a lot that we can all do.
While it is important that we don't forget about the military men and women who are serving our country, we can't forget about their families who are left behind either. Sears didn't forget about them. They realize that they too sacrifice much when their loved ones, most of the time the bread winner for the family, are away for the holidays. This time of year can be a financial hardship for these families so Sears has initiated the Sears Heroes at Home program in order to provide support to these families. You can help by playing Santa this holiday season. Visit the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry and grant someone's wish. Go make a donation. It doesn't have to be a big amount, just what you can afford. As they say, every little bit counts and when it comes from the heart, nothing can be bigger.
