It takes all of us

This year at the Nystrom Holiday Party, we had a theme that “It takes all of us!” As our team arrived at the party, everyone took a turn placing a bough on the frame of the wreath. Together, we created this beautiful end result! It now hangs on the front of our building as a reminder that it takes all of us to make our business continue to thrive. Happy holidays to you from the Nystrom team!

Spreading Holiday Cheer

As part of Nystrom’s corporate responsibility, every December Nystrom participates in an annual Holiday Drive. This year, Nystrom collected three barrels of gifts totaling 121 pounds. These gifts were delivered to Community Emergency Assistance Programs (CEAP) for distribution to 600 families and 1,800 children.

CEAP provides for families in the Brooklyn Park community a food shelf, Meals On Wheels, school supplies that we help with too, and others needed services.  They grow vegetables in the summer for families and teach kids about gardening and healthy eating.  CEAP has been a great community organization to partner with and support.
