My employees organized a holiday craft fair and bake sale!

Last November, I blogged about the amazing art show that my employees put together, displaying many of their fabulous pieces of art. Now, I’d like to tell you about another wonderful show held before the holidays – an employee craft fair and bake sale. Initially, the craft fair was scheduled to be held next spring and then the sad news came that our annual company holiday party was cancelled. It has been customary each year at the holiday party for employees to decorate stockings and do a toy drive to benefit the children of the George Washington Carver residences in New York City.

Still wanting to do something for the children, it was decided to move the date of the craft fair up and also invite employees to bake items for a bake sale, raising money for that cause. As it turns out, the bake sale portion of the fair raised over nine hundred dollars, to be used for a holiday luncheon for the children of the residences and also for school supplies and toys. It was impressive how many people contributed to the sale and the craft fair, once again, proved just how talented the staff at MSLO is! Come, have a look.
