Per Stirling Volunteers — Needs for the Holidays

It has been our tradition for Per Stirling to focus its December Community Initiative on the holidays.  Last December, as an example, Per Stirling sponsored a handful of children for the holidays, and both staff and advisors contributed funds to be able to buy the kids the gifts on their holiday wish lists.  It was such fun that we wanted to make this our initiative again but, after reaching out to multiple organizations, every child’s wish list had already been sponsored.  With 2020 being such a tough year for everyone, it was wonderful to see other members of the community rally to this worthwhile cause.

As such, we decided to instead focus our efforts on sponsoring children, families and our community in a different way this holiday season. Staff and Advisors made monetary donations towards Meals on Wheels and Central Texas Food Bank.  Donations to Meals on Wheels support the delivery of meals, safety checks and friendly visits to those in need, and they help ensure that older adults receive the care that they need during the holiday season. Central Texas Food Bank was our November Initiative that some felt needed additional attention during the holiday season. Monetary donations were also made to Wounded Warriors and Samaritan Ministries.  On a company level, Per Stirling made a $20,000 donation, which was split between the Central Texas Food Bank, The Ronald McDonald House of Central Texas and The American Red Cross of Central Texas.

The month of January, our team plans to brainstorm new initiatives for 2021 and receive feedback from the initiatives throughout the year of 2020. If you have suggestions for volunteer initiatives this year, we would love to hear from you.
