Price’s Alarms employees came together recently in Victoria to celebrate the holidays during our annual Christmas party. It is pretty rare that we are all able to get together as our offices are located throughout British Columbia. This year, somebody suggested we all bring a toy or two for those less fortunate this Christmas. Everyone embraced the idea knowing that 140 people getting together can really make an impact on the lives of the less fortunate.
Our Christmas party has now come and gone but we were left feeling proud of our involvement in the community when we dropped off 9 large bags of brand new unwrapped toys for the Salvation Army Family Services Centre in Victoria. We are a family owned and operated company with more than 140 employees throughout BC and it is the employees who are coming together as a group to support the communities we live in. It feels really good to get together and rally around a cause and our social committee will make certain we are involved in more and more in 2012.
The Salvation Army had a large toy area set up in the basement of the Family Services Centre where parents could come and choose new unwrapped gifts specific for their children which were donated by individuals and organizations within the community. A large line of people were there excited in hopes of giving their family a more memorable Christmas.
