MedBen Employees Participate in Families Helping Families Program

Exchanging gifts with friends and family is fun, but sharing with those less fortunate is the true meaning of the holiday season... and once again, the MedBen staff has embraced the spirit of giving.

For 18 years and counting, MedBen has participated in the Licking County (Ohio) Families Helping Families program. Our employees worked together to raise funds and purchase presents, to ensure that the underprivileged children of our community enjoy a special holiday memory.

Families Helping Families

Licking County Job & Family Services (LCJFS), in conjunction with the Salvation Army, has coordinated the Families Helping Families program for four decades. Families Helping Families calls on individuals and groups to donate presents to brighten the holiday season for members of Licking County. Every year, approximately 600 children and 75 elderly community members receive a variety of gifts from anonymous donors.

This year, MedBen employees shopped for 16 children (from lists provided through LCJFS as well as House of New Hope, which helps foster children) ranging in age from seven months to 12 years old. Each child received clothing in addition to toys that were on their “wish list.”

MedBen has proudly partnered with multiple charities and non-profit organizations over the years. In addition to Families Helping Families, we've provided ongoing support to United Way, Food Pantry Network, A Call to College, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, the Midland Theatre and the Licking County Community Health Clinic, to name a few.

MedBen has called Licking Country home since 1938, and we've pleased to be able to assist the people of our community.

Individuals and groups who are interested in contributing to a future Families Helping Families drive are encouraged to contact LCJFS’ Jamie Spangler at 740-670-8736.
