Spreading Christmas Cheer!

2013 Santa Visit Mr. & Mrs. Claus made their rounds spreading Christmas cheer among JASPER Associates today! It's been a JASPER tradition for Mr. and Mrs. Claus to make their way through JASPER facilities ringing bells, handing out candy canes and spreading Christmas cheer! And this year was no different, it's amazing how a simple "Ho-Ho-Ho" can make so many people smile. We would like to thank the Claus' for spending their morning spreading laughter and Christmas Spirit throughout the walls of JASPER. Another JASPER Christmas tradition is the Giving Tree Christmas Wish Drive, which delivers joy to the community's kids in need. JASPER Associates shopped for toys, bicycles and clothing for families to pick up December 13th. Each year, it's a great way to inspire others and bring hope to kids in need at Christmas. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from your friends at JASPER!
