Wrapped presents with berries

CapRelo employees came together this holiday season to lend a helping hand to several organizations this holiday season.

Employees in our headquarters office participated in a Gifts for Kids Drive for a local nonprofit organization, Cornerstones. Cornerstones promotes self-sufficiency by providing support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare and other human services. 

CapRelo's Stacy Chinn and Angela San Martin organized the drive and collected donations from employees to help fulfill holiday wishes for nine local children, including two young boys and seven teenagers. "Our goal was to collect $750, but we surpassed that by $100, all within a couple of days. It was so amazing to see everyone come together and give to such an awesome cause!"

Stacy and Angela were able to purchase Amazon Fire tablets for the young boys and a variety of gift cards for the teens, as well as a few additional gift cards for Cornerstones. While the organization often receives extra toy donations, gift cards are very hard to come by and appreciated.

Our Calling 5

Employees in our Dallas office worked with Our Calling, a local faith-based organization that offers the homeless friendship, mentoring and support providing meals, clothing, access to computers, church services, access to showers and referral services to area resources.

CapRelo team members volunteered their time to prepare blankets and toiletries for the homeless, removing manufacturer/ retail packaging from the blankets and rolling and taping them for easy distribution. They also organized and stored packages of toiletries for distribution.
