b + c Hosts Annual Charity Drive | Angels Foster Family Network


b + c hosted its annual Holiday Charity Drive supporting Angels Foster Family Network last night at the b + c showroom. Angels Foster Family Network (AFFN) was founded in 1998 with a mission for providing stable placement of children ranging from ages 0 to 5. Each foster family undergoes rigorous foster parent evaluation, training, and a certification process. Foster families promote healing, growth and willing commit to the permanent care of a foster care child until otherwise decided by the county or juvenile court. Angel's families break the cycle of children bouncing around from home to home with their commitment to permanency. 

Foster families and biological parents are bombarded with support from clinical case managers, trainers, and staff at AFFN. Help is always there-even with 24/7 on-call support.

Angels Foster Family Network is deeply committed to the children in their care and the families who support them. We had the pleasure of hosting a Holiday Charity Drive to raise donations for the children of Angels Foster. While any donation is always appreciated, this year, they had a special need for certain items. The donations go straight to the foster parents who are caring for the children in order to provide them with basic necessities.

We had a very special guest, Jeff Wiemann who is the Executive Director of the Angels Foster Foster Family Network speak about the organization. Jeff has been a member since 2013 when him and his wife became a certified foster family. They have four children of their own, but wanted more and wanted to help children as well as give back to their community. Find out more about Jeff’s Story.

Every guest was encouraged to bring a donation to add to our “Holiday Donation Box”. As you can see, we are overflowing with donations and we couldn’t be happier! We are extremely grateful for everyone who came out and donated. Angel’s Foster Family Network is a very special cause near and dear to our hearts, and we are thankful for our supporters who made this charity drive a great success.

Happy Holidays!

Deskorations; How Will You Decorate Your Desk This Year?

Do you love the holidays? Are you looking for some new, creative ways to spread some holiday cheer around your office this season? Well look no further because we have a very special gift for you!

Decorating is a great way to kick off the holiday season, so why not start in your office? We’ve got the best deskoration inspiration ideas for just that! Let’s get started…

1. The mini desk tree

It’s official…anything mini is adorable + automatically liked. And a mini tree is way easier to decorate than a real one.

2. Light it up

Using a string of xmas lights can be a great way to brighten things up. Maybe not as much as the picture below but string them across your cubicle, or even across your desk.

3. Holiday greenery

Since biophillic is an important trend in today’s workplace, adding some seasonal foliage with a poinsettia or a wreath can help bring the outside in.

4. Computer frame

Think of your favorite holiday theme…then frame it around your computer. The possibilities are endless!

5. The cubicle theme

Go big or go home! If you’re really feeling the holiday spirit this year, deck your cubicle out in your favorite holiday setting!

6. Change your screen saver

If you’re looking to do the least amount of work as possible with decorating this year, we’ve got you covered. Changing your screen saver is a great way to show that you’re still festive without doing very much. We’ve even provided you with a holiday screen saver image below (you’re welcome).

7. Presents

Not actual ones of course, but using some small empty boxes or wrapping up random parts of your desk can be a fun addition! (we don’t suggest the whole thing but it’s funny to look at)

8. Chair slip covers

Slip into something a little more…festive. Our personal favorite is the classic Santa cover.

We hope our deskoration suggestions sparked some holiday creativity within you! If you decide to decorate your desk this year, snap a pic of your #deskoration + tag us! @bcofficeinteriors

Happy Holidays!
