Arthrex Gives Back to Those Less Fortunate During the Holiday Season
St. Matthew's House Thanksgiving and Christmas Day Volunteers
Arthrex employees and their families volunteered on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day to serve food at St. Matthew's House in Naples. Arthrex is a long-time supporter of St. Matthew's House, a local charity dedicated to housing the homeless and feeding the hungry.
Stockings for the Troops
Arthrex was proud to partner with the American Red Cross to celebrate our Armed Forces with the Stockings for the Troops Program once again last holiday season! Handmade stockings, stuffed with much needed provisions, were shipped to members of our U.S. military serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and other overseas locations.
Holidays Without Hunger
More than 2,000 volunteers, including about 20 Arthrex employees and family members, donated their time on Christmas Eve to Meals of Hope's Holidays Without Hunger, a food packaging event that successfully surpassed its goal of packaging more than 500,000 meals in two hours! Arthrex sponsored four 10-person stations at Harborside Event Center in downtown Fort Myers, where the event was held.
Gifts Collected to Brighten Local Children's Holidays
Arthrex employees collected dozens of unwrapped gifts for children ages 0-18 during the holidays. The gifts benefited three local charities: Children's Advocacy Center, Youth Haven and Guadalupe Center. Generous gifts included bikes, books, clothes, toys and more.
