Tis Better to Give Than to Receive
What a great, kind-hearted bunch of people! The Mapleonians pictured at left adopted a family for Christmas 2009 by way of the fine folks at the Union Mission, here in Charleston, W.Va.
Giving has always been one of our core values at Maple Creative. It feels good to know that one local family of four, down on their luck this year, will have a brighter Christmas thanks to this local "Secret Santa" program.
Pictured clockwise from lower left: Lauren Boder, Lora Franco, Clayton Ray, Carrie Bowe, Jim Nester, Marc Lewis and Justin Hylbert. Not shown are Michael Haid, Brooke Pauley, Steve Haid and Erin Deegan.
Those of you who've known us for a while will also notice that the snowflakes have returned again this year, which is another cause for celebration!
Here's one more shot of our lovable elves, hard at work (below):
