Adopting a family during the holidays is an annual tradition at VEGA Americas.

Each year, the company partners with St. Vincent de Paul, a charitable organization in southwest Ohio, to purchase gifts for a family in need.

This year has been challenging for a number of reasons, so VEGA made the decision early on to increase their generosity and adopt three different families this year.

Employees from Cincinnati and all over the United States opened their wallets and their hearts to purchase gifts and make donations to make this time of year a little more joyful for those three families.

With most of the gifts purchased and donations adding up to $1,650, the company made a last-minute decision to adopt two more families.

In total, VEGA Americas employees chipped in to make the holidays a little brighter for five different families across southeast Ohio, including children ranging in age from one to 14 years old and their parents.

Making investments in the community and giving back are a part of the VEGA culture, and the company’s employees exemplify VEGA’s values year-round.
