Preparations were underway in early December, with piles of presents accumulating underneath the “Giving Tree,” a Christmas tree located in the lobby of Blue’s headquarters. Every item, from bikes and toys to winter apparel, is distributed to less fortunate children. The holiday party provides an opportunity for Blue staffers to connect face to face with those they support. Another annual event is the Berea Children’s Home golf outing, at which Blue donates more than $15,000 in direct sponsorship and $5,000 for radio advertisements. Blue employees have proudly helped local families enjoy the holidays since 1996 and are thankful for the opportunity.
