'Tis the Season
12.20.13 / Joanna Frechette
Last week ARC was in full holiday spirit! On Friday afternoon we held our annual Holiday Secret Santa Toy Drive. We continued our firm’s holiday tradition this year by selecting a name and purchasing a gift geared towards what that person would have wanted when they were between the ages of 7 and 12. The gift unveiling is always full of surprises.
With over 40 employees participating this year, the gifts ranged from crayons and coloring books, stuffed puppy dogs in travel carrying cases, musical instruments, and even a “Don’t Say It” board game for our Human Resources Manager. The gifts were then bundled up and our office elves took the toys to a Toys for Tots drop off location.
The fun continued that evening with wonderful decorations, holiday attire, and good cheer at ARC’s holiday party. It was a time for us to take a moment and enjoy all of the year’s hard work and reconnect with our colleagues.
The party was held at West Bridge restaurant right here in Kendall Square and included a fantastic spread of finger foods, signature drinks - created by our very own ARCers- and a full array of dinner options and deserts. Each person left feeling full, relaxed and ready for the New Year!
Thanks to all that helped pull these festive events together. Happy Holidays!
