December was a whirlwind of activity for WJW, as staff participated in a variety of holiday-related events throughout the month!
We began with a firm-wide Tree Decorating event for J+J Flooring's Helping Hands project, a city-wide competition to provide themed Christmas trees for kids at Lurie Children's Hospital over the holiday season. WJW staff submitted ideas for the tree theme, with this year's chosen design coming from Elizabeth for a "Creativi-Tree,” which was festively decorated with art supplies that the kids would be able to keep and use after the tree was deconstructed. After a lunchtime decorating event complete with holiday-themed refreshments, seasonal tunes, and a cozy fire crackling in the (digital) fireplace, Jacquie and Andrew delivered our fully decorated tree to the J+J Showroom at the Mart before it was later taken to Lurie Children's Hospital.
Next up, we celebrated the end of a successful 2022 for WJW at our holiday party at ZooLights at the Lincoln Park Zoo, enjoying time spent together outside of the office among the lights and fanfare around the zoo.
And finally, we closed out the festivities the following day with Holiday Gear Day in the office. A very merry time was had by all!
Happy Holidays from all of us at WJW — may the new year be healthy and bright!
