We’d like to wish everyone a safe New Year’s celebration and a very happy 2012, from our family here at Step2 to yours!
Family is very important to us here at Step2, so our office will be closed on Monday, January 2nd in observance of the New Year holiday so that we too can celebrate the holiday with our families. We will be back to assist you at 8am ET on Tuesday, January 3rd.
It’s a ton of fun to be at Step2 around around Christmastime. In addition to the fact that we are around toys all day long, it’s exciting to play a role in children’s excitement on Christmas morning.
The Step2 Store, located right in front of our main office, is open to the public year round. They too are having some holiday fun, deeming themselves “Toy Land.” A giant Christmas tree is the focal point of the store and when the little ones enter they are greeted by a mini tree and snowflakes hanging from the ceiling. If you are in the Northeast Ohio area, we welcome you to stop by to check it out. There is a sale going on right now on excess inventory and discontinued items.
The holiday season is all about sharing time with loved ones. In this spirit, the Step2 Elves (our HR department) put together holiday craft bags with a few activities for our little loved ones. Each bag included a holiday stencil, ornament fun coloring sheets, paper plate holiday character craft, and a decorate a gingerbread house sticker sheet.
It also had a letter to Santa. Santa asked that the letter be returned to the Step2 Elves so that it can be delivered to him. The Step2 Elves will post the letters in our cafeteria. The “Elves” have it under good authority that the big guy himself will be happy to send a personalized return letter.
The ladies on our Customer Service team take the cake for the most holiday spirit in the building. Lights and garland line the cubicles, decorations hang on the walls, and Christmas music fills the air from 8am – 5pm ET each day from now until Christmas.
From our family to yours, we wish you a happy holiday and a joyous new year!
The tornadoes that hit the South this Spring impacted many people, including children. Play areas were destroyed impacting children’s ability to go out, play and just be kids.
In an effort to help the victims of the tornadoes, Step2 teamed up with Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. (K.I.D.S.) to donate 23 slides. Step2 is proud to partner with this organization, which brings hope and self-esteem to more than 4.5 million children and their families each year by providing new clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, books and juvenile products donated by manufacturers and retailers.
The donations are distributed through a network of nearly 1,000 local community social service agencies in the U.S. and abroad. The efforts of K.I.D.S. reach children who are challenged by poverty, homelessness, domestic abuse, low literacy, military family service, major illness, incarcerated family members and disaster survival.
