New Home Star Donates Over 100 Toys Through Company-Wide Holiday Cheer Contest

By Star Report 1 min read

Chicago, IL - From December 1 - 14, New Home Star employees across the country participated in a company-wide contest that encouraged the firm to help spread holiday cheer in three ways: by giving back to the community, by bonding with teammates, and by decorating model homes with festive flair! Utilizing its a technology platform, New Home Connect, NHS maximized participation by making Holiday Cheer a photo contest that could be submitted by anyone in the firm using a specific hashtag. Each submission was equivalent to a toy that the company would donate to a child in need.

“We have done photo contests in the past, and they have always been a really fun way for our team to contribute and compete with one another,” says Marketing Manager, Chris Laskowski. “This contest was extra special, however, as it aimed to give back in meaningful ways and encouraged our teams to go above and beyond to spread cheers to others.

”With over 100 hashtags used with the catchphrase “Holiday Cheer” and over 250 photos captured of agents nationwide spreading cheer, New Home Star donated 100+ toys to children in need through the Toys for Tots program. “After learning the results, the office went on a shopping trip and purchased a bunch of new toys for our donation drop off, says Assistant Marketing Manager, Erin Lyons. “We then went to our local Fire Station in Elmhurst to donate them as they were a drop off location for Toys for Tots this year. We had an awesome time, and it felt so good to give back to our community through this new initiative.”
