You won’t believe what kids are asking for Christmas – It’s not what you think!!!

By | General | No Comments

give-donations-christmas-2016From the CEO of Peabody Engineering – Mark Peabody.
For all of our GREAT Peabody customers and fans, I’d like to share a story.
Here in Corona (as I’m sure in many places across this amazing country) There are people who are doing without the basic necessities of life, while others (like us) are incredibly blessed with everything we need plus excess. As I pulled into church yesterday in my 2015 Infiniti, in my wool jacket I purchased at Macy’s on a recent trip I took to New York City, I read the following story and I was moved with emotion and a desire to help by giving some of what I have (and won’t really miss) to help those who don’t have enough. Please read the story below:

“My name is Nielle Reinhart. I am a Special Education teacher and the PTSA advocate for Outreach. Over the last few years we have seen a significant change in the economy and with that came a significant change in needs of our students. Last year our ASB director, Julie Stivers, started the “Angel Tree” at Corona High School. Students would make their Christmas wishes known, and we would try our best to fulfill those wishes. We decided to continue that tradition this year. We were shocked by what our students wished for. They no longer wished for movie tickets and cell phones. Our students are no longer asking for video games or skateboards. This year we have 70 students asking for things such as food, underwear, shoes, backpacks, school supplies, warm blankets and clothing. There was not a single student asking for a toy, a Prom ticket or a yearbook. Our students were asking for the basic necessities needed to survive. I would like to tell you the stories of a couple of our students.

Right before Thanksgiving break we had a student wish for a blanket and a pillow so that they could stay warm, give-donations-christmas-002-2016while their family of 5 slept on the floor in the family room of a relatives home, under only one blanket. We were able to show up at their house over break with 5 blankets, 5 pillows, 10 pillow cases, 5 foam pads, a Stater Brothers gift card and a large box of food. The saddest/best part of that trip was hearing the 5 year old little brother of our student come out and excitedly exclaim, “Do I really get my very own pillow?”

Last week, Mr. Danesh and I called in a student who had not been dressing out for P.E. While speaking with him we learned that he was not dressing out because his family could not afford to buy him underwear and therefore he was afraid to change into his uniform. He also mentioned that he was afraid to run in his current pair of shoes. When I looked down to glance at his current pair of shoes, I realized that his ENTIRE foot was hanging out and that the toe portion of the shoe was literally STAPLED together and the heel portion had been glued.

give-donations-christmas-003-2016Instead of worrying about what movie to watch on Netflix, or what game to play with their friends, our students are worrying about where their next meal will be coming from, how they are going to stay warm at night and how to keep their shoes glued together another day. In order to help relieve some of their life stresses and bring some Christmas joy their way – we are hoping to help provide each of their families with means to purchase food and clothing. We currently have identified 70 individual students and 24 families in need our help and we know that there will be more to come. We would like to be able to provide each of these 70 students with an $100 gift card to Walmart (where they can purchase clothing, school supplies, underwear, shoes and blankets) and each of the 24 families a $100 gift card to Stater Brothers for food. I am hoping and praying that we can come together as a community and help truly make this a Merry Christmas for these families.”

So, Peabody Engineering is going to contribute to this very worthy cause and invite you to help if you are so inclined. We will match every dollar you give up to $1000.00, but the deadline is December 9th, when we have to have the funds turned in. If God has blessed you and you feel the Spirit move in your heart, let us know and you can be a part of Christmas for some families that really need help.

Whether you contribute or not, we at Peabody Engineering wish you a Merry Christmas and a Blessed time with your family and friends.

Thank You to all those who contributed. We have stopped accepting donations at this time.

Give Thanks At Thanksgiving

blog-post-thanksgiving-001-nov2016Thanksgiving 2016. The time of year when families travel great distances to gather together and celebrate the many blessings we enjoy as Americans. Grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, boyfriends, girlfriends, fiancés and friends. We all put our differences aside, take a day off from the daily grind and come together to eat wonderful food, play games, watch football, parades and pray together.

It’s a day when it doesn’t matter what we believe, who we voted for or if we like white or dark meat, or no meat at all. It’s a time to pause, look around and have a spirit of gratitude in our attitude.

July 4th Independence Day 2016

Freedom Is Not Free

The Fourth of July. Independence Day. The day we celebrate when a few (less than 3% of the population) said ENOUGH! We are not going to live under oppression or be subjugated by a government who doesn’t regard its citizens or value them as more than mere humans; as men and women created in God’s image with certain inalienable rights. The Declaration of Independence was written in Boston some 240 years ago, but it is still relevant today. Every year on this weekend, we get together with family and friends, have parades, fairs, picnics and light fireworks to celebrate, but do we still remember what we are celebrating?

On July 2, 1776, courageous men and women took a stand, at great risk of death and loss of personal property, safety and security for their loved ones and imprisonment. People like Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Josiah Bartlett and 53 others. They “Resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be………..
