Giving

Entering the season of giving.

 

As I sit drinking my coffee this morning, I heard the geese flying overhead, I love that sound. It brings back memories of when I was young, and summer would be coming to an end, we would see the geese fly over, and my mother would say, “fall is coming soon”.   Fall has always been my favorite season. It brings changes to the trees, with the many fall colors, the crispness in the air, and the beginning of the holiday seasons.

 

Each year as the holidays approach, I always start the season saying, I want to give back, or serve in some capacity, whether it be feeding the homeless, or helping a family in need. Each year flies by and before you know it, the season is over, and I didn’t find the time.   Last year our company decided to give back to our community, by picking two families during Thanksgiving and Christmas, to bless. We provided full meals and presents. Our whole office enjoyed the act of giving, and it gave us such joy to bless someone.

 

As the new holiday season approaches, and we start compiling a list of wants for Christmas, I encourage or shall I say, challenge you to take time this holiday season to do something special, volunteer to serve, or pick a family that is having a hard time and bless them. I promise you it will bless you, to be apart of something special, it gives the holidays new meaning. Incorporate your children into this act as well; it helps children to think of ways to help others.   Kids love participating in ways to help people, what better way to teach our children how to be selfless and to think of others. It teaches them kindness, love, and acceptance.

 

This is my challenge for you this holiday season!

 

Cheers,

Jenny

What a wonderful time of year the holidays bring. Time spent with friends and families, busy schedules with parties and gatherings to attend.   It’s a time filled with thanks and hope. The end of the year brings a time to reflect on the blessings in our lives and excitement for the coming new year.

At Sky Financial and Insurance services we are no different.   The end of the year brings a lot of busy schedules. Assisting clients with year-end items and new year planning. Holiday parties and client appreciation, along with closing out our own year-end items, makes for a hectic final sprint to the end of the year. But one thing does not get lost on us during this busy time is the blessings in our lives.

img_6622Sky was built on the idea of creating an agency to serve people and our community.  Service and gratitude is in our DNA and the fabric of our company culture.   Our goal has been and will be to use our company to better our region, to take profits and reinvest back into people and causes. Thanks to all of our wonderful clients, that trust us to serve them, we were able to provide a Thanksgiving dinner to a Grandma that is raising her two young grandsons after the unexpected loss of their parents.   She was/is struggling to afford the additional responsibilities that life has unexpectedly given her.

 

So how can you help?

 

In the month of December we are looking for a family that we would like to provide a meal and gifts so the family can have a proper Christmas dinner and the kids can have some gifts to open and enjoy. If you know of any family that might be experiencing hard times during this holiday season, please let us know. We are hoping you can help us identify a family that could use a little assistance during Christmas. Please email Erik at erik@skyinsurancegroup.com with any recommendation. We thank you and this wonderful community. We hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed holiday season.

 

God Bless,

Erik
