Detroit, MI (PRWEB) July 6, 2008
Founded by Anthony Soave, the Soave family of companies announced the success of playing Santa's helper to families in need during the 2007 holiday season. From both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border, Soave employees generously contributed to charitable programs "adopting" low income households.
Ontario, Canada-based Great Northern Hydroponics and Masco Farms sponsored two families to ensure their children would have a merry and bountiful celebration. Coordinated through the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation, 2007 marks the third consecutive year Great Northern has participated in the sponsorship of underprivileged area families.
"So many of our generous employees participated in this charitable giving that we raised a great sum through voluntary donations. With this money, we were able to completely fulfill our two sponsored families' 'wish lists,'" explained Darrin Didychuk, president of Great Northern Hydroponics. "Together we gave deserving children a beautiful holiday."
In Detroit, Soave Enterprises combined their holiday celebration with holiday giving. Coordinated by the company's ACT Committee, the Soave representatives initially selected three families to sponsor through the Volunteers of America Adopt-a-Family Program.
"Three holiday trees were displayed in the employee lunchroom listing suggested items for each family," noted ACT Committee member Kristan Williams. "A swift and overwhelming response sent us back to the Volunteers of America in search of additional families to adopt. Before team members were done, we had provided five metro Detroit families with much needed items - from clothing and toys to bedding and vacuum cleaners." The ACT Committee coordinates the corporate-wide community outreach initiative, TEAM Soave, including its participation in the annual ADA Walk.
