The True Meaning of Christmas - Coastie Kids Christmas

It's not news that Brownstone Insurance loves to support and give back to our community. Through our volunteer efforts, fundraising campaigns and staff fitness fundraisers, our company makes it a point to give back any way we can.

One of the charities that is supported by our employee workout fundraiser program is Coastie Kids Christmas. Coastie Kids Christmas was founded by friends and supporters of the United States Coast Guard, in an effort to support Coast Guard families during the holiday season.

Because Coast Guard families already deal with so much; time spent apart, traveling, moving, etc., Coastie Kids Christmas gathers donations of toys and gifts to help make the season a little brighter.

Through our employee workout fundraiser program, Brownstone has made several monetary donations to their cause, allowing them to buy gifts and other items for Coast Guard families.

But we've also had the pleasure of experiencing the true meaning of Christmas through our involvement with them as Christmas inches closer and closer. Brownstone customers have shown up with bags full of toys, friends and associates have handed over checks made out to Coastie Kids Christmas, and most of all, we've seen the difference that a few items can make to these deserving families.

These families do not ask for anything. They serve our country and most would probably be too proud to even admit that they needed any help at all. But they deserve it and we are happy to help.

Take a look at some of the Coastie Kids Christmas photos below and remember the true meaning of Christmas this year.
