As The Pandemic continues, there are many people still in need. 

Star Group Veterans Advisory Team member Mr. John Cook looked among his coworkers at Home Depot #6892 (Austin) and realized there was a need within their own. This need was for just the basics as food for a Christmas Meal. 

He came up with the idea that everyone can do something to help a family in need. He reached out to fellow Home Depot employees for donations and also solicited the help of Star Group Veterans Helping Veterans. 

They decided to give the families a ham and turkey for their Christmas meal with all the trimmings including stuffing, yams, rice, corn, green beans, jiffy corn bread mix, cake mix and frosting, etc so they could have a wonderful Christmas meal. Many people were excited to help and were able to chip in. 

On December 14, 2020, Home Depot #6892 (Austin)  Management/Leaders and SG-VHV presented 4 HD Associates with the Christmas Meal Bags. 

Due to the overwhelming contributions they were also able to give each a Gift Card to help during the Christmas Season. 

The Families were overcome with the thoughtfulness and overjoyed to receive such a great  blessing. The four Recipients were Families of Jesse Castro, Samuel Laki,Yesenia Garza and Devren Balancier.

Even in a Pandemic a small act of kindness goes a long way and touches the hearts of all. 

Thank You Mr John Cook for reaching out to Star Group to participate in this Event.
