TQL Delivers Final Gifts of the Season
Christmas bells are ringing this morning thanks to the generosity of TQL employees.
Team MVH at headquarters has worked with St. Joseph Orphanage in Cincinnati for three Christmases in a row now.
Two years before that, broker Tyler S. and his now-fiancé were looking for a charity to support and they selected St. Joe’s. Enlisting the help of his work team yielded much better results, including $650 donated this year. Tyler used the money to purchase 89 toys for the kids.
“For the last three years I’ve utilized the giving spirit that TQL and Team MVH has and quadrupled the toys that we were donating the first couple years,” Tyler said. “By far what we’ve seen the most requests for is Lego sets.
“Team MVH has a strong drive for participating in charitable programs, whether it’s our Annual Giving Campaign or sit-ups for vets. This was something where our whole team could get on board. Our team has been fortunate; we appreciate what we have and we like to pass that on whenever we can.”
Team Chafin at corporate headquarters continued its relationship with a family they first met in 2013.
While the organization that connected them has since disbanded, the friendship with the family - which includes a grandmother, her daughter and six children, ages 3 to 18 - has only grown stronger over the years. The youngest child has cystic fibrosis.
The team took its collected gifts of food, clothes, toys and good cheer to the family for an afternoon Christmas party Dec. 22.
“We delivered probably 25 presents and two heaping carts of groceries to our family,” said sales team leader Garret S. “They were thrilled and so very appreciative.
“The 18-year-old is doing well in her classes at UC Blue Ash. She has stepped up big time in helping with her younger siblings and some of the adult responsibilities in the home. She asked for cooking utensils and her own set of pots and pans for Christmas to start doing more cooking.
“We consider ourselves blessed to be able to come around the holidays to put a couple presents under the tree and a Christmas dinner on the table. Each time, our visits have become more like family time. We do it because we care. We have been so blessed ourselves and ‘small things done with great love can change the world.’”
“I have to admit that over the years my belief in Santa Claus has waxed and waned, but after our visit and my encounter with the jolly old elf, I am a believer,” said group sales manager John C. “I am very blessed and lucky to work with all the great folks who care so much and do so much for others.”
We’ve enjoyed shining a spotlight on people and teams around the company and country doing great work to make their communities better in 2016. Because TQL Cares for the Holidays.
