Giving Back: TEAMSOS's Elves Spread Holiday Cheer

With the holiday season in full swing, the whole TEAMSOS family is definitely feeling festive. And giving to others in need is a wonderful way to share that festive feeling with our community.

Although we here at TEAMSOS give back to our community all year long, we know that this time of year can be especially tough on single parents and their children. That’s why we continued our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, to provide holiday cheer to those in need.

First, we cleaned out our closets for a used clothing drive, courtesy of ReUseIt. TEAMSOSers donated 15 huge bags of gently used coats, shoes, and other warm clothes.  We also took part in the BBBS Adopt-a-Child’s Wish List Program. TEAMSOS Staff Members granted the holiday wishes of 18 children by purchasing items from each child’s wish list. The presents purchased included clothing, art supplies, athletic shoes, and more.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the official charity of TEAMSOS, and we have supported the local Sacramento chapter for years. You can read about some of our past fundraisers here.

P.S. We also had some fun spreading holiday cheer around our office. To see pictures of the festive decorations, click here.
