While there are many reasons to love the holiday season (cookies, Christmas music, fun decorations and spending time with family), my favorite thing about the holidays is giving back to others. Wednesday, December 11th marked the 7th year Bramble Berry teamed up with the Salvation Army in order to provide presents for more than 11 families including 21 children (you can see last year’s trip here). It was great being able to go all shopaholic for families in our community and provide them with presents for under their trees.
This years annual shopping extravaganza was our largest ever! Over 20 Bramble Berry employees, family and friends met at our local Fred Meyer with lists for each family in hand. Three hours and several thousand dollars later, items for all 11 families were checked off the list. Team Bramble Berry had a great time “playing Santa” while shopping through clothes, toys and electronics to provide families with the items they coveted.
