At Penmac, the Christmas lights are twinkling, our trees are decorated, and all of our thirty branches are ready for the season. Our corporate and Springfield offices are especially excited about the week ahead. This Saturday, December 12, Penmac’s Springfield, MO location will participate in two special events to celebrate the holidays.
First, Penmac will be the presenting sponsor of the Downtown Springfield Christmas Parade. This year, the Springfield Downtown Association will be celebrating its golden anniversary—50 years of serving the downtown community. To celebrate, this year’s Christmas parade theme will be Golden Christmas Memories. Penmac, which has enjoyed being in the heart of the downtown community since 1988, is proud to be a part of this year’s parade.
Penmac’s float will feature a scene from the beloved Peanuts Christmas special with Charlie Brown and the gang. A Charlie Brown Christmas will be celebrating its golden anniversary this year as well. Many share that cherished memory of gathering each year for the holiday special. This spirit of togetherness is part of what we value here at Penmac Staffing. For over 27 years, Penmac Staffing has been bringing job seekers and businesses together, creating employment success. This year, the Penmac float showcases Snoopy’s festive doghouse, a colorful tree lot, and Charlie Brown himself, the boy with a heart of gold. The Peanuts gang reminds us the value of working together.
During the parade, the local nonprofit Reading is Fundamental (RIF), will be hosting its tenth annual “Parade of Cookies” fundraiser. RIF will be set up in the Penmac lobby selling homemade holiday cookies, hot chocolate and coffee. All proceeds will benefit RIF, which promotes reading by providing free books three times a year to every first and second grader in Springfield schools. The goal of RIF is to ensure that all children have access to books so they can discover the joys and value of reading. To learn more about RIF, visit ReadingIsFundamental.org. Penmac is happy to support such a good cause by hosting the cookie sale.
If you’re in the area on Saturday, stop by to celebrate with Penmac. Happy holidays from Penmac Staffing!
