At Unison, our holiday season is “stuffed” with tradition! The day after Thanksgiving is not our “Black Friday” it’s our “Fantastic Friday,” when we gear up for Christmas parades, parties, charity drive, calendars and more!
Starting Friday, November 23rd you can stop in for your 2013 calendar. I could tell you what they look like, but that would ruin the fun of finding out for yourself! While you’re in, don’t forget to purchase our festive Christmas money envelopes. There are eight designs to choose from at 25 cents each, or 5 for $1.00, and all the proceeds from envelope sales will be donated to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
That day is also the kickoff for our annual Christmas Charity Drive. From November 23rd to December 15th, we will be collecting items to create “Snuggle Sacks” for children that benefit from services provided by the Community Clothes Closet. This awesome organization helps client expand their limited resources by giving away new and gently used clothing and household items FREE to those in need in the Fox Valley Area. The goal of our charity drive this year is to give a each child a new pair of pajamas, a new fleece blanket and a new book and pillow to keep them cozy during the cold winter season. These items are given to children bundled together as a “snuggle sack”.
You can provide a child in need with a “Snuggle Sack”. Unison is collecting the following items:
- New Pajamas
- New books
- New fleece (preferably two coordinating pieces measuring 1 1/2 yards each for a blanket) or a pre-made fleece blanket
- New standard size pillows
Unison will donate $5 to the Community Clothes Closet for every item donated (up to $1,500).
Add those items to your holiday shopping lis,t then drop off your donation at any of our four locations on your way home. Let me thank you in advance for your donation :)
Bundle up the family, fill your thermos with hot cocoa and find the ideal spot along the parade route for the upcoming Little Chute, Kaukauna and Wrightstown Christmas parades. Moola Moola, our kids’ club mascot, and members of the Unison family will be rolling in style this year—come and see for yourself at one or all of the parades!
