The project is a thank you to the Houston community for supporting Terracon this year. See its special message of thanks: http://www.terracon.com/greatpeople/
Employee-owners in Terracon's Houston office are celebrating the great people they serve as clients by coordinating with local school districts to assist families in need. For the third consecutive year, they are purchasing gifts and household items to provide families with a happier holiday season.
Houston employees enjoy providing holiday cheer for the families. A Christmas tree is placed in the office lobby with ornaments specifying the families' gift requests. Employees select an ornament and purchase a gift, and then sort, wrap, and deliver the gifts. This year the Houston office team is "adopting" a family with seven children.
"We get to hand deliver the gifts to the families and see the gratitude and happiness on the parents' and children's faces when they open the presents," said Teresa Zuehlke, event coordinator in Terracon's Houston office.
