We normally mention something transit-oriented on our #TransitThursday blog posts (obviously) but today we wanted to touch on something a little different: holiday cheer.
One of the best things about the contagious holiday spirit that’s going around is catching the excitement and joy of helping others.
On Monday, our Communications and Public Affairs team at Triangle Transit spent their morning helping Housing for New Hope collect donations for their clients. It’s not often that one of the vans in our vanpool gets to transport the joy of Christmas instead of passengers but this week it was packed to the ceiling with presents (so much so that our director was buried in packages up to his nose).
Housing for New Hope assists families and individuals in their journey out of homelessness and this year companies and organizations in the area “adopted” their clients by providing donations wrapped in Christmas cheer. We couldn’t be more thankful to have had the opportunity to take a few hours out of our week to be a part of this great event.
If you’re looking for a way to give your time or your finances this season we recommend The Salvation Army of the Triangle. They’re still in need of help to meet their holiday goals. Durham Cares is another great organization which has the scoop on what needs there are in the area.
From our team here at GoTriangle, we hope you have a fantastic Christmas Holiday and that you find a few moments to spread that joy around.
