Marketing automation specialist GetUWired lends helping hands at Salvation Army, No One Alone

By Ella Wilson

Marketing automation specialist GetUWired gave a little back this holiday season in its 4th quarter team-building event. On Friday, Dec. 6, GetUWired employees lent their helping hands at the Salvation Army warehouse in Gainesville bagging up toys for needy children in the area and delivering gifts to No One Alone in Dahlonega.

Marketing automation specialist team bags gifts at The Salvation Army

Here is GetUWired’s marketing automation specialist team lined up taking instruction from one of the friendly Salvation Army employees on how to bag up the gifts. It’s funny to watch a bunch of professional adults that spend most of their time glued to computer screens get down and dirty bagging toys in a warehouse.

We pulled toys from one side of the warehouse to fill bags for kids on the other side of the warehouse. There were lots of “Oh, Cool!” and “I want one of these!” all around. We all had a great time tapping into our “inner children” to pick out toys we knew the kids would love.

And here is our finished product. We attacked that place like a swarm of locusts and turned 50+ trash bags into bags for Santa in no time flat.

Our dirty smiling faces. For folks who are used to sitting in desk chairs all day, this was a lot of work! But so worth it. There were more than a few comments at the end of the day that this was such a rewarding, fun project that we should definitely do next Christmas, too. To reward all our hard work, our boss, Lee Goff, treated us all to barbeque. (We’re a bunch of barbeque addicts, that’s for sure)

Wrapping gifts for families at No One Alone

Next it was back to the office to wrap presents for the two families we adopted through the charity No One Alone. These families are victims of domestic violence who fleed their homes with next to nothing. So marketing automation specialist GetUWired went out and purchased so many gifts for them that it looked like a Walmart had exploded in our office. We got down to business like a well-oiled machine, sorting and wrapping and tagging in assembly-line fashion.

After all the gifts were wrapped, we delivered them, two carloads full, to the No One Alone office in Dahlonega. The woman who met us there to take the gifts said she had never seen any family get so many gifts. Which made us all a little teary-eyed. We all felt really good knowing we were helping these families have a happy holiday.
