Innovative Energy employees came together last week for the company’s Christmas party, which included a gift exchange, plenty of food and a silent auction. As it was last year, the goal of the silent auction was to raise money for a local family coping with financial hardships.
Everyone from the production workers and office staff to the executive directors and the company’s president took part in the silent auction. Many also donated additional funds after the auction ended. The funds were then used to purchase clothes and other necessary items for the children of the family as well as toys for the younger children. A $100 gift card to a local grocery store was also purchased.
This is the second year that Innovative Energy conducted a fund-raising silent auction as part of its company Christmas party. After last years’ event raised more than $600 to help a struggling local family, it was decided that such efforts should be a part of every Christmas party at Innovative Energy for years to come.
