I also see my store as a great way to give back to our community. So, in 2009 we developed a holiday ornament that benefited an outstanding organization or group. It wouldn’t be a huge donation, but it would be a donation from a new source. Last year benefited the Columbus Christian Women’s Organization. An outstanding group that helps so many wonderful people in our area. They will get a check this November for $540. Shh, don’t tell them. They don’t know yet! For 2010, I’m proud to unveil our new ornament designed again by Kitty Keller Designs of Seguin, Texas…The Columbus Cardinal ornament benefiting the Columbus Booster Club.
It is a small thing to do for the community. But I’m sure every retailer out there agrees. Giving to the community is so rewarding in so many ways. We are all lucky to have great customers who love what we offer. I think I am lucky to be able to give a little something back every once in awhile.
