Every year, the Living Resources office staff look forward to visiting the various programs to chat with our individuals and deliver holiday cheer. Sadly, this year, COVID regulations prevented in-person visits, but true to the spirit of 2020, we came up with a new plan. The result was an explosion of Yuletide joy among our entire Living Resources family. Office staff who were decked out in their “ugliest” Christmas sweaters, elf costumes, and other festive attire executed a spirited Christmas car \parade at a safe distance from individuals in their cars and vans. Retired CEO Fred Erlich (aka Santa Claus) was among those in attendance bearing goodies from his workshop in the northern-most region of the world and greeting our individuals. The magic was as real as it gets.
The parade was followed by an afternoon Zoom chat with Santa and Mrs. Claus (CEO Elizabeth Martin) where everyone sang holiday songs, discussed their favorite holiday movies and traditions, and shared their hopes for a new year.
We thank all of the volunteers who made this day come to fruition!
