SCMH Halloween Celebration Benefits Make a Wish Foundation

October 31, 2014 WHITTIER, CA  Beyond the Halloween costumes, office d├ęcor, and fanfare, Southern California Material Handling (SCMH) employees seized the opportunity to extend the celebration to the cause of Make a Wish Foundation via candy apple grams.

Employees purchased candy apple grams and had them delivered directly to their selected recipients early morning. Proceeds of the candy apple sale goes to Make a Wish Foundation Orange County and Inland Empire. “The well-received desk-to-desk candy apple gram generated funds enough to jumpstart the involvement of SCMH in the annual Walk for Wishes.” SCMH Warranty Supervisor and Make a Wish Foundation Wish Grantor Mike Rosoff shares.

Rosoff together with HR Head Gabby Duran initiated the candy apple gram activity that not only gave the employees a chance to sweetly greet their peers a happy Halloween, but also contribute to a greater cause—helping fulfill wishes of children undergoing life-threatening illnesses.

SCMH Gets King of Queens Exposure

A little bird (an employee whose identity we were not able to request permission to disclose) told us about this scene from King of Queens where SCMH had a significant air time exposure.

About 11 seconds of tight shot and 30 seconds of full shot while the forklift was being operated.

Good thing though, our operators are well-trained enough to avoid the mishap on this scene.

Take Care of Business Before the Holiday Rush

Planning ahead is always a good thing. Especially when it involves the Holiday season, you may want to consider getting ahead of those deadlines. While you think you may be ready for all the celebration the season brings, you may need extra time for that surprise visit from your aunt, or hunting the present you always thought would be on the store shelf.

So get all the work stuff accomplished earlier then have that extra time to spare when those Holiday surprises pop up. Here are some things that you can maybe take care of in advance:

1. Collate data you need for that year end report. Yes it may be too early, but you can gather the ones from January to October already. This way, you only have to input data for the remainder of the year. Sometimes too you're going to have to collaborate with others to accomplish that report. Give them a heads up and let them start preparing as well.

2. Don't wait 'til your next scheduled car check up or for the service button on your car to light up. Bring your vehicles up to speed with oil change, brake checks, etc., ahead of time so that when you're running around town over the Holidays, you don't have to worry about car break downs.

3. As early as now, finalize the list of recipients of corporate gifts. Start signing the greeting cards and passing them around. This helps in getting them out in the mail earlier without having to worry about courier/postal office's Holiday delivery load.

4. Check the supplies in your office. Are you running low on anything that is more in demand over the Holidays? Plates, spoons, forks, coffee supplies?

5. How are your service vehicles performing? Are your lift trucks well-oiled? Batteries in place? Filters changed? Do you have a go-to rental company in case you need more forklifts to service increased demand for your products this season?

6. Are any of your licenses expiring before the year ends? Driver's license? Business permits? Forklift operator certification? Subscription renewals? Now is the time to check into these things before issuing departments and organizations for these requirements announce their Holiday schedule.

Now breathe. Relax. After you've taken time to accomplish these things, you have more flexibility for that surprise visit.
