Boeing’s Spirit of the Holidays brightened the holiday season for local families, foster youth and seniors in need. With the help of the Boeing gift and volunteer match program, employees raised over $268,000 for the annual Spirit of the Holidays drive.
Overall, 417 employees, friends and family volunteered and dedicated 1,138 hours of service. Thousands of toys were collected and distributed and 188 families and 118 seniors were sponsored.
“Seeing the joy on the parents faces as they shop through our hundreds of toys every year is an experience like none other and donations from Boeing employees allow us to provide the perfect environment for our clients” said Lauren Laing of Hopelink.
Spirit of the Holidays is a Boeing employee community engagement program that enables employees to honor our heroes and give to our communities during the holiday season. Engage with us on social @Boeing #BoeingInspires
