A holiday message from Jim

Several years ago, we added up all of the money we paid for fruit, nuts and candy holiday gift packages we sent to our customers - it was a lot. We decided that the world will be better served if, instead of sending holiday gifts, we made donations to those who have less in life and greater needs in honor of our customers.

After a while, we extended this practice to include at least some of the money we spent on adults during the holidays.

With all of this in mind, we’ve chosen to contribute to these outstanding organizations in your honor. Links are included in case you would like to make your own donation.

The Arnold Palmer Medical Center Foundation supports world-class medical care for women and children from all over the globe, including trauma, heart and cancer treatments and, if necessary, without cost - no one is ever turned away.

Homes for Our Troops assists severely injured veterans and their families by coordinating the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently. The homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given atNO COST to the Veterans we serve.

Alliance for Smiles provides free comprehensive treatment for cleft lip and palate deformities in under-served areas of the world, and helps to establish and maintain permanent centers to provide follow-up treatment and continuing care to children who have received surgery.

Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides a full college education to the surviving children of special ops personnel who lost their lives while serving in the U.S. military, and immediate financial assistance and support to ensure severely wounded special ops personnel are able to have their loved ones at their bedside during recovery.

Thanks for participating with us in this spirit of giving. And thanks for all you’ve meant to us over the years. It’s with great anticipation that we look forward to our work together in 2014.

Wishing you and yours all the best for a safe and happy holiday season.
