Summary

Holiday music rang out, cookies and hot cider were served and festive decorations decked the halls as Discovery Communications' employees kicked off the holiday season at the annual Adopt a Family event, held in partnership with two local organizations, Families Foremost and Child Welfare Services of Montgomery County, Maryland. Employees from the Silver Spring, Maryland offices supported nearly 200 families this year, banding together with friends, family and co-workers to provide gifts from each family's wish-list.

Employees also had the opportunity to show their support for the troops by creating custom greeting cards as part of the American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign.
