Boys and Girls Club Gift Collection Drive

UPSTAR held a campaign drive to collect Christmas gifts for the Fort Wayne Boys & Girls Club. At the Holiday Luncheon and GMM, our REALTOR and Affiliate members donated over 60 gifts and over $400 in cash and gift certificates for the youth at the Fort Wayne Boys & Girls Club. The UPSTAR staff got a little too excited about all the gifts. We were caught in the act (Mannequin Challenge) playing with them (and sometimes fighting over them). Check out our mannequin challenge below:
