This year the employees at Steiner Tractor Parts chose to work with three charities. Toys for Tots, WNEM food drive and a local family in need of help. With multiple donation ideas available it would have been easy for one to be neglected. But true to form our STP group came together and donated to all three.
Our Toys for Tots boxes were overloaded with 95 toys this year.
A STP employee came to us about a family in their area who was struggling this year. A great-grandmother in her 70’s raising two great-grandchildren under 10 after they lost their parents. When asked what she needed she only requested a few small things for the children, and possibly a pair of tennis shoes or a deep fryer for herself. I am happy to say not only did she receive shoes and a deep fryer her and the children received clothing, toys and several other items as well as two large gift cards for Meijers and Walmart to help with any other items she may need after the holidays. Last month the employees also provided the family with food for Thanksgiving.
And last but not least two boxes were filled with around 50 food and clothing items for the Giving Back food drive for the Rescue Ministries of Mid-Michigan.
