Ho Ho Holiday Donation Drives

“Our Markstein Sales Co. team always goes above and beyond in what they do for our customers and this holds true with their giving spirits as well. The food and cards are providing much needed help and hope to our community that lasts beyond this holiday season.”

Laura Markstein, President of Markstein Sales Co.

For over 100 years, the Markstein Sales Company team has followed the guidance of our founder, Albert Markstein, “Always give back to the community that has given us so much.” And our Bay Area California communities are in greater need than ever this holiday season.

With the changes and hurdles experienced in 2020, many people are facing harsh new situations. Families are experiencing food insecurity for the first time and the food banks are overwhelmed. And our senior citizens have faced months of continued isolation that is detrimental to their physical and mental health. The Markstein Sales Co. team wanted to do something that would make a significant difference in the lives of these families and senior citizens.

A food drive was set up to support the Monument Crisis Center and the barrels they provided were overflowing with donations so we started filling multiple crates and boxes. An unofficial competition among different groups within the company brought even more awareness and needed items.

Card making kits and supplies were provided for team members to work with friends and families to create cards for senior citizens in two local care centers and those visited by Meals on Wheels. From the beautiful designs to the heartfelt notes and even photos, the hundreds of cards remind our older community that they are remembered and cared for even when we can’t see them in person.
