In the spirit of giving, employees in the St. Louis office participated in Sts. Joachim and Ann’s Adopt-A-Family program for the fifth consecutive year.

This program ensures that parents with children and the elderly will have a wonderful Christmas by providing them with food, gifts and financial assistance. For the annual event, more than 700 families in need are ‘adopted’ by neighbors, local organizations, social groups, churches, schools and businesses.

The family assigned to the Belden St. Louis office was made up of a grandmother and grandfather taking care of their two grandsons, aged 11 and 1.

Employees filled 14 boxes with donated gifts and supplies. It took three cars to deliver everything from the St. Louis office! In addition, Belden and its employees donated gift cards and financial assistance to ensure the family could buy groceries and pay utility bills during the cold winter months.
