Here at Inphonite we are lucky to be surrounded by great, caring people and to have jobs we love and that can support us. Unfortunately, not everyone is so lucky. When I go home to spend Christmas with my family I am certain of a few things: a roof over my head, delicious food to be shared, and presents for everyone to open that lie beneath a tree that we spent hours decorating. I am thankful for that every day because I know there are so many people that don’t have the luxuries that I do, or even the basic things I sometimes take for granted.
I am grateful that every year Inphonite gives me a way to give back to the community and those in need. This year was the 3rd year in a row that I personally have participated in the Adopt-a-Family program with Inphonite.
As a company we “adopt a family” for the holidays and try to give them a wonderful Christmas they otherwise may not have. We started this holiday season off by giving our family a tree to decorate, bringing them some of the spirit and tradition that I know so well. We then received a wish list of gifts for the children.
I am proud to say that many of our employees participated and went above and beyond what was asked of them. It was an unbelievable and incredible experience to see our Conference Room packed with toys, clothes, movies, dolls, and sports equipment to give to the family. One of our employees also had the idea for everyone to donate some money so we could purchase a gift card to a local grocery store to help the family purchase food for the holidays and beyond.
Being in the software industry we understand the value and importance of technology, especially that of a computer. With the ever-growing popularity of computers in this day it is almost essential for every person to have one whether it be for school, work, play, bills, or keeping up with current events. With that in mind, Inphonite donated a computer and all necessary and related extras. We hope that the children will be able to use it for their assignments in school as well as for entertainment purposes and that the parents can explore the uses of a computer to make their lives easier.
It was an amazing thing to see the employees of Inphonite contributing their time, money and effort to making the Christmas for this family one to remember.
