During a time when many families are having to go without, especially during the current pandemic, the associates at RPM Wood Finishes Group (WFG) knew it was more important than ever to lend a helping hand with Christmas right around the corner. In the spirit of giving back to their local community, the RPM WFG team pulled together to help provide gifts for less-fortunate children at an elementary school in Hudson, North Carolina.
Normally coordinated by Sheila Laney, who retired earlier this year, Jenny Wilcox took over leading the coordination of donations this year. As part of a Christmas Angels initiative, associates were given the opportunity to “adopt” a child, or even a few children, with the school’s administration providing wish lists with their individual wants and needs. Together, the RPM WFG team fulfilled those Christmas wish lists—helping to bring back some level of normalcy for each child during this particularly challenging year.
