Every holiday season, Prism System’s employees go above and beyond to give back to our wonderful community in Mobile, Alabama. Throughout the years, Prism has teamed up with several different organizations, such as the Toys for Tots drive that is held by numerous local news and radio stations. However, this year, Prism had a local need that was placed before us. An employee at Prism Systems knew of a family here in Southern Alabama that was fostering five children. Prism knew immediately that they were called to help this family during the holiday season and forever make an impact in these children’s lives. Starting December 1st, Prism launched a companywide campaign, raising over $1,500 in toys for these five children that before, would not have had a Christmas. Prism Systems announced that they would match the employee donation, and with that, could provide the family with a Walmart gift card to help offset the costs of fostering five children.
However, sometimes things work out differently than what you imagined. After Prism began the process of collecting for this wonderful family of five, it was learned that there were two other families that were also in need. Each family was fostering one child. Of course, Prism took on this last-minute charity challenge and chose to completely sponsor both the children and the foster family. By the end of our holiday charity drive, both children received well over $300 in toys. Each family was also gifted with a Walmart gift card to help with the cost of fostering a child, such as groceries.
It is safe to assume that Prism Systems, Inc. has found a new tradition to fall in love with. There is no greater feeling than being able to give back to those in need in our community. From all of us here at Prism, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
