December is here and all things are merry and bright at The Craft Agency! It is finally that special time of the year where we spread Christmas joy to our employees, our clients, and our community.
Do you want to know how we celebrate Christmas at The Craft Agency? It’s not just about decorating the office, exchanging gifts, or having a party. It’s also about giving back to our community, having fun with our colleagues, and honoring our family legacy. In this blog post, we’ll share some of the activities and events that we do during this festive season, and how they reflect our company culture, values, and achievements.
One of the core values of The Craft Agency is to help the less fortunate in our community, especially during the holiday season. We believe that every child should know what it’s like to wake up on Christmas morning with presents under the tree, and every person should feel joyful on Christmas day, rather than dread and disappointment. That’s why we participate in two programs that make a difference in the lives of many families in need: Angel Tree and Toys 4 Tots.
Angel Tree is a program that connects donors with children who might not otherwise have anything for Christmas. These children often face many challenges and hardships, such as poverty, stigma, and loneliness. By sponsoring a child from the Angel Tree program, we can provide them with a gift and a message of love and hope.
This year, we sponsored 12 wonderful kids from the Angel Tree program. Employees at The Craft Agency were quick to “adopt” a child, happily purchasing Christmas presents from their kid’s wish list. After collecting all 12 presents and seeing the beautiful wrapping of each gift, it’s hard to be a grinch! It warms our hearts to see how a little effort goes a long way, and knowing how much joy these gifts will bring to these children and their families on Christmas day.
Toys 4 Tots
Toys 4 Tots is a program that collects and distributes new toys to local children in need. The program aims to deliver a message of hope and happiness to these children, and to enhance their self-esteem and well-being. The toys are collected and distributed by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.
Every year, we take donations on behalf of the Toys 4 Tots program in Jackson, where we collect brand new toys and clothes for local children in need. This year, we collected an overflowing number of toys; so many that we could barely fit them all in the box! We even had some of our ‘holly jolly’ customers contribute bags of toys to the collection. There’s nothing like sharing the Christmas spirit!
Fun @ Work
Another value that we cherish at The Craft Agency is to have fun with our colleagues and celebrate our achievements. We work hard, but we also play hard. We enjoy each other’s company and appreciate each other’s talents and personalities.
Craft Christmas Party
The Craft Christmas Party is a tradition that we look forward to every year. It’s a time to relax, socialize, and have a blast with our co-workers.
We also have many reasons to celebrate this season, as we have several birthdays, anniversaries, and milestones among our staff. David Craft, Liz Navarre, Jordan Palmer, and Heather Ray are all celebrating their birthdays this month and Mariah Dufek and Hailey Molton are celebrating their Craft anniversaries with us.
We threw Faith Stueber a company-wide baby shower on November 30th, to congratulate and prepare her for her new journey as a first-time mother. If all goes as scheduled, she will welcome her baby girl by the end of December!
Becky ‘Hirschman’ is now Becky ‘Noble’, as she just married her long-time partner on December 9th.
We are so happy and proud of all our Craft work family members!
The last value that we uphold at The Craft Agency is to honor our family legacy and history. We are not just a business, we are a family. We have been serving our community for over 100 years, and we are still going strong. We are grateful for the vision and leadership of David W. Craft and Robert M. Craft. We are also thankful for the dedication and loyalty of our staff, who are like family to us. And we are especially appreciative of our clients, who are the reason why we exist and thrive.
This year, we celebrated our 100th anniversary with a series of events and activities that showcased our company culture, values, and achievements. We had a centennial gala, a historical exhibit, a fun social media celebratory campaign, and more. We were thrilled to share the excitement with our customers, vendors, insurance companies, and followers on social media.

This year has been one to remember, and we at The Craft Agency, Inc. are thankful for our loyal clients for their dedication to our work family. We look forward to serving you all in the new year!
As you can see, we celebrate Christmas at The Craft Agency with giving back, fun, and family. These are the values that define who we are and what we do.
