Paycom Employees Donate $18,000 in Christmas Toys to 

Foster Children of Anna’s House Foundation

Oklahoma City –Paycom employees have fulfilled the Christmas wish lists of 82 Oklahoma County foster children currently in the care of families recruited, certified and supported by The Anna’s House Foundation (AHF). The gifts donated by Paycom totaled nearly $18,000, up $6,000 from last year. 

A team of nine AHF employees, board members and volunteers loaded 1,000 unwrapped presents from Paycom’s corporate headquarters on Thursday and immediately delivered the treasures to 46 AHF foster families in preparation for the holidays. 

“It is absolutely remarkable that 800 employees filled every Christmas desire for the foster children served through Anna’s House Foundation,” said Katherine Craig, executive director of the Edmond-based nonprofit. “The provision of these children’s gifts is a huge relief to our foster families. Even more special, it will likely be the first Christmas for many of the children in our program.”

“This is Paycom’s third year to adopt the wish lists of foster children under the care of Anna’s House Foundation, and while the need for donations has grown, the hearts of Paycom’s employees have also grown,” said Jennifer Kraszewski, Paycom’s director of human resources. “I want to personally thank the 800 Paycom employees who donated presents to those most vulnerable, so that these children may experience a very happy holiday.”  

“For many, Christmas is a magical time of year, but for our foster loves, holidays often bring memories of missing loved ones and heartache,” said KC Koonce, an AHF foster mom of five. “Paycom helps AHF foster parents fulfill Christmas wishes and hopefully inspire a renewed belief in the kindness of others. If only for a moment, our children may forget their heartache and trauma, and experience Christmas joy, and for that, I am beyond grateful to our donors.”
