In a matter of just three short weeks, the Vista family was able to collect more than 100 toys for the U.S Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots Drive. Our goal was to collect 50 toys. It’s safe to say we’ll have to set our sights a bit higher in 2020! Thank you everyone who helped make an impact in the lives of those in need.
This holiday season, Vista adopted three foster kids with the hopes of making their Christmas memorable and filled with gifts. Our employees passionately embraced DA Blodgett’s foster families and were able to fill their holiday wish lists with presents they may not otherwise have had. These families live at the D.A. Blodgett residential home - where children and adolescents are provided a safe and loving place to live. D.A. Blodgett’s residential treatment program offer kids caring foster parents and an environment that fosters healing and compassion. D.A. Blodgett goes to great lengths to provide the kids with both emotional and physical support. Their goal is to create an atmosphere where the children can feel at home and experience a real, safe home-life environment.
We deeply value each one of our relationships and try to show that in subtle ways throughout the year. The holiday season has always been a fun time for all of us to spread some extra cheer!
In the holiday spirit, we put our heads together and came up with something really unique this year! We assembled photos of each of our employees and put them together in a family style layout to create our holiday card. We hope that you all enjoy this as much as we did putting it together!
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Vista team held a fundraiser that allowed employees to purchase Vista themed breast cancer awareness t-shirts. It wasn’t easy getting all the guys to wear pink, but it’s for a great cause! All proceeds were donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a charity that provides programs and services to help individuals and families that have been affected by breast cancer. “Donating to this cause and honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month is very important to us because we all know people who are impacted” said Staci Bryant, the organizer behind Vista’s fundraiser.

Especially when kids are involved, everyone steps up to the plate.” said Melissa Scheidel, book drive coordinator, “It’s just great to know we are supporting a school that might not receive new books otherwise.”
