Rethink the Holiday Office Party
Sometimes it’s nice to shake things up a bit. Since there are so many holiday parties, dinners and get-togethers (trust me, my waistline knows), you may find an unconventional celebration to be refreshing.
That’s exactly what we’re doing in our office this year. Instead of a traditional office party, we’re sharing in the spirit of the holiday season by volunteering together. It’s a fun, easy way to give back and spend time together, which is what the holidays are all about, right? Our office is helping with the Frisco Fire Safety Town holiday lights event in Frisco, Texas. Safety Town is a community education program run by the Frisco Fire Department that resembles a miniature town complete with real buildings that represent area businesses, including a FedEx Office retail center! We will help the children write letters to Santa, distribute coloring books and more. This volunteering event should be lots of fun, and we’re encouraged to bring our families.
So as you plan your office’s holiday celebration, think about ways to do it differently – maybe you can volunteer at a soup kitchen as a group, sponsor a needy family, or spend time together at a community event like we are. But whatever you do, we wish you a very joyous holiday season!
We’d love to hear about what you’re doing in lieu of the traditional office party to celebrate the season, so please share your ideas. You may even start a trend!
