What's Going On

January 2014—Promega Biosciences Xmas Tree Drive

In December, Promega Biosciences in San Luis Obispo, CA held a Christmas Tree Drive to raise funds for the local Women’s Shelter. Due to the generosity of PBI employees and company matching over $1,200 was donated to the “HO-HO-Hope for the Holidays” program that support families forced from their homes due to violence. Children that attended were surprised with snow delivered to the facility in sunny California allowing for some rare sledding. The trees were provided by the McGee Christmas Tree Farm that employs eco-friendly harvesting by “stump culturing” to allow a new tree to grow from braches nurtured and turned upward.
