Quality Department Chooses to "Adopt-a-Family"

Presents under a tree The Holiday Season, while often a joyous time of year, can also be a very stressful time of year for many individuals and families. To add to this a global pandemic, the Holiday Season of 2020 left several people in various forms of need, whether that be emotionally, financially, or both.

The Quality Department at Taconic Biosciences found a way to spread some holiday cheer, enriching people's spirit, while also helping a local family in need. Contact was made with the local school district to "adopt-a-family" for the holiday season. The team was given a wish list made by the family of wants and needs of their six-year-old son for the upcoming holiday. Based on this list, the members of the Quality Department donated toys, books, art supplies, clothing, and gift cards to provide this family a joyful holiday. Through this process, a local family was relieved of the financial burden of the holiday season and was able to enjoy the magic and joy that this time of year is all about. At the same time, our team members were able to come together for a very rewarding, common goal, providing a sense of togetherness that is hard to come by in this new, socially distanced world.

The Quality Department team was very thankful to able to be a part of this charitable opportunity and look forward to supporting many more local families in the future.
