Each December we gather Miner staff together to have lunch and share cookies and build bikes to be donated to local children in foster care and have an auction that raises funds for the JCEO.
This year, we donated four bikes that were distributed to children in foster care thanks to our friends at the United Way of the Adirondack Region and their partnership with the Department of Social Services. Additionally, our annual charity auction raised a record $1,849 for the JCEO!!! We are completely blown away by the generosity of our staff and the commitment to carrying on the incredible legacy that William and Alice Miner started in the North Country.
Our team was also unusually festive this year with a banner turnout for our festive attire component of the Christmas party! Many sweaters were adorned with festive cows which seemed especially fitting!
