Our local help group Holiday Giving Tree had a larger list this year than last. An even greater number of local children than last year had signed up to receive holiday gifts. This year as in years prior, PlastiCert answered the call, taking more than a dozen children’s wish lists, more than ever before.
PlastiCert’s 2023 gift donations for community youth
Striking about this year’s list were the gift requests from the children. While there were certainly a few toys by name and Xbox gift cards requested, a substantial number of them simply asked for clothes, shoes, even socks and undergarments. If there was ever a more telling economic indicator of how things are out there, I have not seen it. While those of us in the business world are doing well to quite well, the disparity between upper and lower has never been so apparent. For a child to use their one ask for Christmas, to be clothing or shoes, rather than games, toys, candy, or the like, is ………… disheartening.
Such a stark reality is even more drive to successfully grow our businesses. Hire more people, raise wages, and do what we can for the communities in which we reside.
