In the Spirit of Giving

TECO’s employees got in the holiday spirit by donating toys and gifts for the children and teens who are at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital this holiday season.

It was TECO’s fourth annual drive, and it was record-setting! TECO’s goal was to collect 100 items. When we surpassed that goal early, we raised the bar to 150 – and even topped that by the drive’s end.

From left to right in top photo, TECO’s Linsey Whalen, Rosalie Arellano, Jackson Fay, Karen Thomas, Priscilla Avila, Melissa Ripple, Jenice Ricks, Ernestine Shepard, Marsha Ackman and Thomas McDonald all helped coordinate the drive, encourage participation and load the donations.

The toy and gift drive began just before Thanksgiving and concluded with TECO’s Christmas breakfast. To make giving easy, we place large gift-wrapped boxes in the lobby so employees and contractors easily can drop off their donations according to age groups (babies and toddlers, boys 5-12, girls 5-12, and teens). We use donated cash to purchase gifts in the most-needed categories.

We plan to continue the tradition to help brighten the spirits of children and teens who find themselves in hospital during such a special time of year.
