Unum employees will deliver a tractor-trailer load of Christmas gifts today to the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults offices.

Today marks the 13th year the insurance company has adopted hundreds of Partnership clients for Christmas, fulfilling wish lists for children, the homebound elderly, homeless women and families. All gifts are purchased by Unum employees who work together in teams to select wish lists, shop for items, wrap and deliver the gifts.

"Many of our clients simply do not have the resources to make Christmas happen in their own homes for their families," said Beth Herriman, the Partnership's volunteer coordinator who organizes the annual giveaway.
