As the holiday season approaches, the staff and clients of Best Drug Rehabilitation (BDR) in Manistee, Mich. have been in the giving spirit.

BDR adopted three families through Love, INC and FiveCAP, Inc. to provide holiday gifts for those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it.

“It’s a great thing for the staff and clients to get involved in this giving process,” said BDR Chief Operating Officer Amber Howe. “Not only are they able to help the less fortunate, but they work together and build camaraderie as a team.”

It truly was a team effort.

Staff went out to purchase gifts for recipients that ranged in age from infant to grandparent. Gift suggestions were provided by Love, INC and FiveCAP, Inc., many of which were practical in nature.

BDR was sure to get the practical gifts, but also wanted to add a little extra to ensure the kids had some fun opening up presents.

“We didn’t just want to fulfill needs, we wanted to provide some fun,” said Howe. “These families may not be able to afford toys and games for the kids and it’s nice to be able to give them something to allow them to be carefree — even if just for one day.”

Once the gifts were purchased, a group of clients got together to wrap them to give to the families.

“It feels good to be a part of something like this,” said one client. “Knowing that we are helping others have a happy and fun holiday really means a lot.”
