On Thursday, December 12th, A few memebers of The InSource Group team, including our very own InSource Elf, visited Dallas preschool Mi Escuelita. In the weeks leading up to this visit, The InSource Group team had the opportunity to adopt preschool angels from our office Christmas tree. With generous donations from our employees, The InSource Group was able to adopt 19 angels ages 3-4 from Mi Escuelita to provide learning toy gifts for the holidays. During the preschool’s Christmas party, The InSource Elf delivered the gifts to some very excited children. The elf also read the children a book, played games, and had holiday snacks. This is the second year The InSource Group has adopted angels from Mi Escuelita and is grateful for the opportunity during the holiday season.
