I am truly blessed to experience these holiday traditions every year with my family and friends. One of the greatest lessons I’ve learned from my family is that showing gratitude for what we have, yet being able to spread graciousness and goodwill to those who might not be as fortunate, is truly the spirit of giving. That’s why each year RW Garcia donates several pallets of product to local food banks in Las Vegas and North Carolina (where our manufacturing facilities are based). After all, the holidays are most importantly about giving back. I think we can all embrace the spirit of Thanksgiving day by taking time to give thanks for the people in our lives, whether it be family, friends, coworkers, the Uber driver, or the clerk working at the local mini-market when we have to make a last minute run for more butter.
Each year we donate extra product to local food banks for Thanksgiving & Christmas.
By giving back to our communities, in even the smallest of ways, we become more understanding of each other and the unspoken challenges we all face on a day-to-day basis. And so, the season of gratitude begins to come full circle as we reflect upon our appreciation of others, both those directly involved in our lives and those we might pass on the street every day. With gratitude we go beyond thankfulness; we acknowledge the goodness in our lives and then we add to it.
With gratitude, I wish you all the best this holiday season!
