NYSTEC Wrapping Party Benefits Children and Veterans

NYSTEC volunteers were busy again this year lending their talents to a shopping and a wrapping party for a good cause on consecutive nights in early December.  The first evening involved a dedicated few who shopped for all of the goodies needed to help the Adopt a Veteran and Caring for Children organizations. The following evening, several more caring NYSTEC volunteers (18 in total) joined to lend their talents for the Caring for Children wrapping party. With so many volunteers, the wrapping was done in no time, and the results will hopefully bring smiles to some if not all of the gift recipients this holiday season.

As a result of NYSTEC’s corporate contribution and generous NYSTEC Employee donations, we were able to support 2 families and 15 veterans through the Caring for Children Foundation and Rensselaer Adopt a Veteran programs.
