Friday - December 9, 2016: When the Grand Plaza dental team received money to host a Christmas lunch for their dental office, the team instantly thought of how to better use the money.
“December has always been a season of giving, our team heard of an organization collecting donations at the Grand Plaza Center. We were inspired by the charity in our community, and we collectively decided this would be a great opportunity as a team to give back,” says Teresa Fragoso , Assistant Manager for Grand Plaza.
Instead of treating themselves to lunch, the team donated the money to Pasitos Con Esperanza, a campaign spearheaded by Univision 23 to give shoes to needy children.
While the amount was not large, the spirit of giving was great. The team hopes to inspire others to make a mark in their community as well.
“Although we are so grateful for the money, we felt that our blessings should be shared and our dollars would most benefit these children. We were thankful for the opportunity to unite as a team and continue to serve our community,” says Fragoso.
