Employees at Embrace Home Loans in Newport again continued the company’s tradition of assembling Thanksgiving baskets for those in need during the holiday.
Volunteers recently gathered to fill 25 baskets with groceries to be used to create meals for Thanksgiving and beyond. The baskets also contained gift cards for local grocery stores and personal items, including diapers, shampoo and toothpaste.
“One of the many values the 600-plus employees of Embrace have witnessed from our founder, Dennis Hardiman, is to operate a company as a family that cares and to be generous toward our neighbor,” said Kurt Noyce, president of Embrace. “With Thanksgiving always falling on or around Hardiman’s birthday, the employees have long presented this community-outreach as our gift to him. It’s always moving to me to see how much care each department/office puts into their baskets.”
The completed baskets were delivered to local families through the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph’s parish in Newport. •
