Timberland’s Giving Tree Brightens New Hampshire’s Holiday Season

Timberland employees at a December 16th event for Adopt-a-block, one of the several local organizations listed on the holiday giving tree.

Timberland employees volunteered with Adopt-a-block to set up a gift room from which 270 low income families would choose gifts for their kids of all ages. Timberland had volunteers serving all three days to help restock gift tables and wrap gifts for the families who came through. Adopt-a-block is one of the several local organizations listed on the holiday giving tree.

On November 5, Timberland had their second annual “Craftstock” event, where twenty-five Timberland employees used their service hours to make no-sew pillows and blankets to donate to those in need. This year, the employees also made 125 gift tags for the company’s giving tree, which was set up in the Stratham, New Hampshire office in early December. Employees could choose a tag to purchase a holiday gift for people in need supported by the following local organizations:

  • HAVEN is dedicated to addressing public health through violence prevention and improving the well-being of children and families. Preventing sexual abuse and providing support for those impacted by domestic and sexual violence can lead to healthier and more secure children and adults.
  • Great Bay Services offers many opportunities for personal growth through programming promoted to increase awareness and skill levels in Health and Life skills, the Arts, Volunteerism, Career Development, Technology, Community Integration and Residential Services.
  • Seacoast Adopt-A-Block has worked to build meaningful relationships within the Portsmouth-Seacoast Community.  Seacoast Adopt-a-block serves the elderly, the widowed, the disabled, and those who cannot help themselves.
  • Wentworth Home provides assisted retirement living and offer three levels of care that are specifically tailored to individual needs with the ability to transition from Independent, Assisted, and Added Care Services

On December 17, Timberland hosted a gift-wrapping party to wrap all the gifts in-house. The following day, eight Timberland employee volunteers delivered the donated gifts to the New Hampshire organizations listed on the holiday giving tree, spreading holiday cheer in the local community.
