Throughout the year, Westminster Tool looks for ways to give back to our community. Our involvement is seen through our sponsorship of events like our 5k fun run/walk that raises money to support education in the local community, and through our continued financial support of the Moosup Elementary Makerspace program. The Westminster Tool team is also active in helping out on the Plainfield Discovery Bus, and by hosting a booth at the annual Celebrate Plainfield Day. As we get closer to Christmas – a season of giving we look again to our community to give back and help spread holiday cheer and warm wishes.
For the last six years, Westminster Tool has been coming together to bring Christmas to local families. Each year, a social worker in the community matches each child in the program with a Secret Santa. This year, the team came together to help bring Christmas to three children. We are given a few key details about the children, including their ages, clothing sizes and individual preferences. From this, the members of our shop each donate presents to make their Christmas morning special.
To continue with the tradition of giving, each employee of Westminster Tool received a gift of two hundred dollars for Christmas to be donated in their name to a charity of their choice. Each employee chose a charity that is significant to them and one that has had a meaningful impact on their lives or the lives of their loved ones. Being able to give back to organizations that have personally impacted our lives helps us to show our gratitude and truly embrace the spirit of giving. With nearly 40 employees, we know that our support of these charitable organizations can make a significant impact and to us, that is the best kind of gift.
While we strive to support and give back to our community year round, we try to ensure we do a little extra this time of year to ensure everyone feels the spirit of the holiday season!
