Double Bracket:      The second floor of the Crowe Horwath 330 building adopted seven families from Jefferson Traditional School for the 2011 Holiday season.  Within those seven families we were able to purchase all of the “wish list items” for thirty-two individuals, comprising of twenty-three children ages spanning from fifteen to newborn, and 9 parents and / or guardians.      In addition to the gifts that were purchased, we were able to provide each family with a $30 gift card to Martin’s Supermarkets.  The schools, as well as the families, were extremely appreciative of the donations, time and effort that we put into providing each of the families with a Happy Holiday. Thank you to Crowe Horwath for supporting Jefferson!
