eDOC Innovations staff members once again celebrated their commitment to the credit union cooperative principles through community outreach this holiday season by delivering a donation of 150 lbs. of various food items to their local food shelf HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects) and adopting a local family in need to make their holiday a joyful occasion.
“When you deliver 150 lbs. of various food items to a food shelf and see how little they have, a mixed emotions surface and the true message of the holidays shines through. We were able to provide HOPE with items they were running very low on, many healthy options, and some of our staff were kind enough to include sweet foods to enjoy. I’m so glad we were able to help families in need get the holidays they deserve. Nobody should go hungry, especially during the holidays,” commented Dillan Fierro, sales associate for eDOC.
“I am overjoyed to be part of a company that puts a value on the spirit of giving. Everyone who selected a requested gift from our giving tree helped several children who would have had very little chance at a magical Christmas morning. These children are not looking for the next iPhone or Xbox, these kids know what it’s like to go without. These gifts meant the world to them,” related Jack Anderson, VP of Systems who delivered the gifts to eDOC’s adopted family.
eDOC Innovations is a CUSO committed to following the cooperative principles and engages their employees in monthly activities, planned and executed by staff, as part of their team building efforts. Although the season is recognized as the spirit of giving, eDOC staff gives back to their community many times throughout the year to honor their concern for their community.
