MicroTek Employees Fulfill Dozens of Children’s Holiday Dreams by Answering Their Letters to Santa.
DOWNERS GROVE, IL (December, 2014)—MicroTek, a global provider of on-demand business training and meeting solutions, is making holiday wishes come true this year to dozens of children in need by participating in the annual U.S. Postal Service Operation Santa Program. A longtime contributor to this program, MicroTek CEO, Don Silvensky, has made his company’s contribution even more special with company-wide participation.
“I’ve been contributing to Operation Santa Program for several years, and I wanted to reach out to help more families,” says Silvensky. “What better way to do that than by getting the entire company involved.”
On Friday, December 5, employees will select a child from a pile of letters received from Operation Santa Claus Program. Each employee will receive $100 and paid time off to go shopping for gifts. On Thursday, December 18, the MicroTek elves will wrap the gifts and deliver them to the U.S. Post Office. Then, on December 19th the MicroTek family will gather for their annual holiday party to celebrate the over 50 children they will help in making holiday wishes come true.
This is the second year Silvensky has opened up the Operation Santa Program as a company-wide effort. In doing so, hopes that other company leaders are inspired by the idea and incorporate charitable activities into their own corporate holiday celebrations.
“We are so happy to be participating in this program as a company for a second year,” says Silvenky. “My hope is that MicroTek employees continue to be inspired by this program and that our impact becomes greater with every year.”
