Dear PEI Member:

All the staff here at PEI wish you the happiest of holidays and a prosperous 2014. As you can see above, we exchanged gifts this year. After drawing names last month we shopped for toys that fellow staff members might have enjoyed when they were children. Opening the gifts is always fun. Finally we donate the gifts to a local charity for distribution to underprivileged children.

Does your office have a holiday tradition? We invite you to share your holiday story and photos on our Facebook page.return to top of page
