Last Saturday, December 23rd, members of the Republic Wealth Advisors’ team and our families participated in Roadwire Cares Adopt-A-Family program.
Roadwire, a neighbor of Republic’s Austin office, invited us to join their employees, neighboring businesses, and friends in their holiday program whose mission is to feed and provide gifts to Austin families in need during the holidays.
The event kicked off earlier this month as Roadwire hosted a gift wrapping party in their Austin office. The Roadwire team set up long rows of tables as volunteers (including Bernadette, the best wrapper in our office!) poured in, excited to put their wrapping skills to use and share some Christmas cheer. Several hours later, the gifts were ready to be delivered.
Fast forward to this past Saturday. We arrived at Roadwire’s office and were greeted with profiles of the wonderful families we were fortunate enough to help. These details included names, ages, favorite activities, favorite colors, delivery locations and a summary of gifts to be given. The Republic team received two related families in the same complex in East Austin. After reviewing their profiles, we ran through our supplies checklist and ensured our coolers were filled with delicious ingredients. The team eagerly grabbed the gifts bags, loaded up the cars and set out to meet our families.
The children could not contain their excitement as they burst open the doors upon our arrival. We introduced ourselves and brought everything inside. One family received a ham and the other a turkey along with side dishes, drinks, and utensils – all the makings’ for a festive holiday meal. Each family received their bag of presents to be opened on Christmas (though it’s hard to say if the children were able to restrain themselves from ripping into at least one on Christmas Eve). Many of us have been there!
The families were extremely thankful and the Republic team appreciated the opportunity to give back to our community. The holidays are a time for giving and providing families with gifts and a meal was an amazing experience. The event reminded us to be thankful for all we have and to share our good fortunes with others.
With year-end drawing ever close, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish your families and you a happy and prosperous 2018!
