GIVING BACK: Soldiers receive a salute from residents

May 27, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Deciding to tackle the planning of a major event was nothing Gretchen Woods would have seen herself doing before now. However, an initiative launched by her employer started Woods on a journey to pay tribute to soldiers in the area.

Shindigz, a company based out of South Whitley, started a program to encourage its employees to give back to the community. The Journey project started in 2011, and has as many as 50 employees participating. As employees complete a certain task, they move up a level within the program and earn rewards such as gift cards and eventually, a trip to Disney.

Woods has been employed with Shindigz for 13 years and finds the program is a way to not just impact the community but also an employee’s family.
