The bins in the lobby here at the office are full again as our Thanksgiving Food drive is underway. Every year, we sponsor several needy families and provide them with their Thanksgiving dinner. The staff brings in canned foods, dry goods and everything for the sides, and the company will buy each of the recipient’s turkey. We do this every year on Thanksgiving and again on Christmas. It’s a great way for the whole company to pull together as a team and share the blessings that we have with others.
Essentially, that’s what we do here at Sagunto Star also. We have harnessed the power of the internet to benefit our community back home. Interactions here on this website and on facebook has catalyzed great initiatives to help others.

Not all charities are yet taking advantage of this innovation though. There are still a few who do it the old fashioned way, either by direct interaction or through snail mail.
