Murrieta Company 'Adopts' Military Family this Holiday Season

Trinity Worldwide Reprographic made one family’s Christmas a bit brighter this year.

Murrieta-based company Trinity Worldwide Reprographic made one family’s Christmas a bit brighter this year.

The company "adopted" San Diego family, Delaneys, as part of their “Love Thy Neighbor” fundraiser.

“Each month we choose to help a different cause and get the employees involved by donating their time or raising money,” said CEO Paul Rosenow.

For the month of December, the company chose to adopt a military family. Deployed in April, Kyle Delaney is currently serving in Afghanistan until March 2013. 

His wife, Jennifer, was left the task of raising their four children, Connor, 17, Caleb, 10, Carter, 5, and Cayden, 3, while also working full-time.

“While my concern goes to those who are serving, those left behind (like parents) struggle,” Rosenow said.

Although not physically present, Kyle was included in the festivities receiving gifts of his own. He wrote a letter to thank the company for their continued support of not just his family but his troop overseas.

Jennifer and Connor also presented Rosenow with a flag flown in his honor during “Operation Enduring Freedom” by Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 361 Rein CH-53E in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

“It is such a blessing,” Jennifer said. “I am just so thankful.”

May we all keep our U.S. troops, veterans, and military families in prayer this Christmas time & through the New Year and reach out to our neighbors with acts of kindness, compassion & love. Together we can stand strong and be a light in our communities giving God all the glory. Elizabeth Soto at Trinity Worldwide Reprographics

Sorry but I am confused about the family selection. I appreciate the military, however, choosing a two income family to provide xmas gifts to is rather odd, given the number of families that are unexpectedly, poverty stricken. The military family needs love and support, not materialistic things. I can guarantee you that their kids were not going without a Christmas tree or gifts this year.

Dear Confused Gigi. It seems that because this company didn’t choose the perfect family “according to Gigi” that it has led to your confusion and judgment of their decision. Please let me help you with your confusion. I will totally agree with you that giving love and support is important however as you say “Materialistic things” are also important. Please refer to the following passages in the bible James 2: 14-26 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. Gigi, my questions for you would be 1. Because you know the perfect choice of a family to support, this past Christmas what family did you adopt as Trinity did? Military or not 2. How are you using your influence in your life/community to help others? 3. I understand that Trinity adopts a family, charity or a Non-Profit organization every month to support. What have you done?

I understand, from reading another interview, that this family has been under an intense amount of stress and pressure. Not just from the primary bread winner and father being overseas for a long period of time, but from being forced to leave their home because of mold, etc… I for one am glad to see a company concerned about the community and not just the bottom line. I would think this is an act that would inspire and encourage others. It certainly has me.

WHY NOT NOW??? It is one thing to regurgitate the Bible, it is another to live it. By your sarcastic and judgmental attitude, I can see that you are still working on the memorization of the bible, rather than practicing its content. As for whether I have adopted a family?? I have done more than that. I have dedicated the last 15 years of my life feeding families who are truly poverty stricken, raising money for their basic necessities, providing Christmas gifts to children who would otherwise not have any, etc. etc. I have worked hard in reunifying over 150 mothers with their children as well as providing guidance and love to incarcerated youth who had no homes. Have I affected my community??? Most definitely!!!! Do I continue?? Everyday!!!! Do I feel the military are deserving? Absolutely!!!! But....are there children who spent their Christmas without gifts or a bed to sleep in??? Yes!!! Am I faulting "Trinity" for giving back to the community??? Of course not! I applaud them!!! We need more people giving back to the community rather than simply cutting and pasting Bible verses on the computer. Respond if you like....I'm done:)
