MIAMI, Jan. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Students at the Fienberg-Fisher K-8 Center enjoyed the merriest of holidays thanks to goTRG, a leader in omni-channel and supply chain solutions. As part of a year-long community service project, the teammates at the company's Miami headquarters dressed as Santa Claus and his elves and distributed clothing and toys to more than 350 students at the school.
goTRG is viewing 2018 as the year to "Pay It Forward," said goTRG CEO Sender Shamiss. "After record-breaking sales in 2017, goTRG will be sharing its success throughout the communities in South Florida in the new year."
In December, goTRG challenged its teammates to find ways to "volunteer, help the community and make the world a better place." In fact, Sender asked his teammates to identify and suggest outreach programs to be included in the GoTRG Give Back 2018 program.
"The company's mission is two-fold; it seeks to bring some joy to members of the community in need and to "create a positive energy and culture in the workplace as well as your daily life," Sender said.
The students at Fienberg-Fisher K-8 Center, a Title 1 school, were the recipients of the company's first outing. More than 350 students were called, by name, by Santa to receive holiday gift bags, said Patricia Anderson, goTRG's human resources manager.
After nominating the school as the company's first outreach project recipient, Anderson worked hard with her team to learn information about each and every child so they could personalize the Christmas gift bags. The bags included appropriately sized pajamas and toys, selected especially for each child. "Seeing the kids react to hearing their names called by Santa Claus was so fulfilling for me. I know we are doing the right thing," she said.
Along with the individual gifts, goTRG has committed to helping the school build a robotics lab. The company already donated 25 laptop computers and is planning to outfit the lab with necessary technology.
Additionally, goTRG's team members, and mascot SKUgo, will be on hand in February for a four-day long rehab project that will include painting, assembling tables, setting up computers and the whole installation of the lab.
"We are committed to bringing technology to this school," Sender said. "We are eager to help create an environment where the students love to learn."
"We are so excited to implement our outreach program! This is an amazing team building opportunity for the company, teammates and our local community," Sender said.
