PHINNEY BISCHOFF ADOPTS A FAMILY FOR THE HOLIDAYS THROUGH CHILDHAVEN
Press Release, Posted on December 19, 2012
Seattle, WA — Phinney Bischoff's Friday lunches are typically filled with conversation about the upcoming weekend or current projects, but on December 14, the team was getting into the holiday spirit by trying to decide whether to get a six pack of white athletics socks or buy them as individual pairs.
As has become an annual effort by Phinney Bischoff, the team was on a shopping trip, purchasing gifts for a family it was supporting through the Childhaven organization.
"For the last several years, we've decided to work together to help a family life through Childhaven," explains Holly Keenan, Phinney Bischoff's President. "At this time of the year it's important to remember how lucky we are and by helping in this way it helps us spread our good fortune."
With the entire team in attendance, Phinney Bischoff paid for three overflowing shopping carts of things with funds donated by employees and matched by the company. Staples like athletic socks and shampoo were purchased, along with toys that the family's two year-old will enjoy.
Phinney Bischoff's efforts will help make one family's holiday season brighter.
"It's humbling to be reminded that we're not buying video games and smart phones for our family," Art Director Cody Rasmussen said. "This family has basic needs that we all take for granted and we hope by doing our part we can make a difference."
Childhaven, a United Way agency, has been in the business of helping children since 1909. It is a recognized leader in therapeutic child care for the youngest victims of abuse and neglect and strives to break the cycle of abuse and neglect by supporting and nurturing families.
