Reaching Out to Volunteer With Epic Outreach

At HC Brands, we value our community and take every chance we get to give back to all the wonderful people who support us. This March, our office got the chance to volunteer at a beautiful farm right here in Jacksonville, One EPIC Farm.

We had an enthusiastic team step out of the office to help out around the farm. Every employee at HC Brands holds our core values to heart: Passion, Winning, Curiosity, Collaboration, Accountability, and Grit. Their hard work at the farm showed just how important these values are to everyone at our company.

HC Brands Employees Posing In Front Of One EPIC Farm Barn

The HC Brands employees were tasked with multiple ways to help out this lovely farm, getting to work right alongside the many animals that are roaming about. Altogether, our team helped give a fresh paint job to the barn, reroof the chicken coop, clear out weeds, and donate to and feed many of the farm animals!

People Painting A Barn Red

Our team got to work right away. The pig barn was in need of a paint touch-up. So, our team got to work giving the barn a fresh coat of red paint. With lots of helping hands and our surprisingly skilled painters, the barn was finished in no time and looked picturesque in the middle of the farm.

An honest demonstration of grit was shown by our employees who volunteered to remove weeds and branches that were blocking some paths behind a fence. As the employees got to work getting rid of the weeds, the pigs also had the chance to enjoy a nice meal of said weeds. A true win-win situation!

Another couple of passionate employees volunteered to roof the chicken coop. They laid on new panels to help protect the chickens from the Florida rain. Once the roof was finished, the hens, alongside their stoic rooster, were able to strut back into their comfortable coop!

Not only did the employees at HC Brands get an opportunity to volunteer at this beautiful farm, but each team member also had the chance to interact with many of the fun and friendly animals there. Jimmy the pig is certainly an honorary “Holmie”, along with the charming dogs, Tanner and Tater.

A special thanks to our Email Marketing Specialist, Ashley Withers, who put this plan into motion. And of course, a big thank you to EPIC Outreach for allowing us to take this opportunity to give back to our wonderful Jacksonville community. The employees at HC Brands truly enjoyed an enriching day of volunteering!

See how you can help by checking out Epic Outreach and becoming a part of their next event or tour.

Connecting With the Community Through Our Internship Program

The Jacksonville community has supported our business for over 65 years, and now it’s time to return the favor. This summer, we gave local students the chance to work hands-on in their field of study in a professional setting. Because of their hard work and dedication, they were able to learn and grow with the rest of our team. By continuing to mentor talented graduates, we strive to close the bridge between business, education, and community.

Networking With Local Students

HC Brands is always excited to meet and greet potential new “Holmies” at local colleges and universities. Recently, our team created one-of-a-kind merchandise for the University of North Florida to show students what our business is all about. We were able to share some of our brand story and give the students a taste of our company culture.

When we make an impression on Jacksonville students, we encourage them to stay in the North Florida region and positively impact the local economy. We hope to serve as a channel for educational institutions to assure their programs are meeting industry needs.

Creating a Well-Rounded Program

Our goal is to manage a program that is mutually beneficial and enhances the local workforce as a whole. We expose valuable talent to the work of e-commerce businesses so they can carry knowledge forward. By teaching the prospective workforce new skills and techniques, we motivate them to become involved members of the Jacksonville society.

Our internship program allows us to bring in innovative minds from our very own community. While the interns are learning from our leaders, they are also giving us new ideas and fresh perspectives on how to improve our procedures. Because of the connections we make with local students, our business is able to continue evolving and expanding.

Hearing What Our Interns Have To Say

In order to keep our program running for the long term, we encourage previous and current interns to share some feedback. After a summer of onboarding and training with the tech team, Zack provided some insight on what it means to join the HC Brands team.

“From day one I was already contributing to the company and getting involved in a variety of tech projects. I learned something new every time I came into work and my peers were always willing to help me overcome obstacles. I would absolutely recommend this internship to other students that want to gain real world experience in a welcoming environment.”

Winter Wishes 2021: One to Remember

The team at HC Brands celebrates any opportunity to give back to the Jacksonville community! For the 2021 holiday season, HC Brands employees supported Englewood high school students in need by partnering with Communities in Schools of Jacksonville.

“The Winter Wishes program gives us the chance to work with underprivileged and at risk teens in the local community,” says Sonia Postema, Chief People Officer.

HC Brands team members excitedly purchased gifts and donated money to brighten the holiday season for 10 teens, and on December 15th, HC Brands joined the Englewood students and instructors on a virtual meeting!

9 of 10 Winter Wishes Recipients

Englewood students, such as 11th graders Jacob McKinnon and April Perez shrilled with glee as they opened their gifts. When teachers announced that lunch would also be served, purchased with funds donated by HC Brands employees, students were extra excited!

Here is the highlight reel from the 2021 Winter Wishes program:

Jacob Shows off One of His Winter Wishes Gifts

April Shows Her Unique Anime Gift

Employees from other HC Brands facilities located in Austin, Texas, Salem, Massachusetts and West Chester, Pennsylvania also donated money to support Winter Wishes!

We collected $650 in addition to a room full of gifts! We used this money to purchase additional individual gifts, stocking stuffers for all the students, and also bought their holiday lunch. I love that we were able to spend time with the older students. I feel like high school is tumultuous and it’s easy to forget how much these students need love and attention, says Sonia Postema.

HC Brands has also worked with Communities in Schools of Jacksonville for school supply donations, and looks forward to a continued partnership! Along with programs like Winter Wishes, HC Brands also supports the Jacksonville Humane Society, Her Song, Rethreaded, and Haiti 180.

A philanthropic pulse is at the heart of our company values, and we strive to make a difference in the Jacksonville community, says CEO Bryan Croft.

Living, learning & working in a social distancing world


How To Properly Wear A Face Mask

Wearing a mask has become a part of what people are calling the “new normal.” Masks aren’t just a means of protection against the novel corona virus, but a symbol of stepping up in hard times to support your coworkers, neighbors, friends and especially those who are most vulnerable. Although many of us are wearing our masks, we may not be wearing them properly. Sometimes our execution is a little off.

Make sure  you are wearing  your mask properly to not only ensure everyone’s safety, but to prevent you from sticking out like a sore thumb.


Buy a Mask that Fits!

Carefully measure your face! When buying online, read the measurements of the mask thoroughly. It’s also good to have your measurements handy for in-store shopping since trying on a mask is a sanitary issue.

Now this is a mask that is tight to the skin!

How to Measure your face for a mask?

  • For Height: You want to use flexible measuring tape or even a piece of string & a rule to measure the length between the bridge of your nose to directly under your chin.
  • For Width: Use the same materials to measure the length from your right cheek bone, going along the bridge of your nose, to your left cheek bone.

Our masks are made with two-ply 100% polyester material. It fits and secures to your face based on your mask size. You can check this first DO off the checklist!

If you measure for approximately 7″ x 4.75″ in you fit into a large

If you are measure for approximately 6.375” x 4.25″ you fit into a small size

Wear Your Mask Anytime You Go Out in Public

Now that you have a mask that fits, remember that you bought it so that you would actually wear it! Always bring your mask with you, and wear your mask especially indoors.

In indoor spaces (places that are enclosed by walls or windows), wear your mask

In outdoor spaces (places that are fully open to the outside), wear your mask

Whether you are going to your local supermarket  this evening, or you are going to your local park, you never know who you may encounter and what may be in the air, so it is always a good idea to wear a mask everywhere you go. The equation is quite simple: Going anywhere outside of the security of your own home = wear your mask!

This Lowes customer created her own safe zone. (Do what you have to in order to feel safe.)

Put On Your Mask the Right Way

How to put on your mask properly:

  1. Grab the straps of your mask
  2. Pull & latch each strap to the back of each of your ears, one at a time
  3. Adjust with the edges of the mask so it is secured under your chin and sits directly on the bridge of your nose*

Image source: umass.edu

*If you have to adjust your mask after putting it on, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly

Wash or Dispose of Your Mask After Each Use

It is super important that after every use of your mask, that you either dispose of it, or (if you know that it can be used again) that you wash it properly.

Tips for Washing your Mask:

  • Make sure that you mask is actually washable (if you are unsure either contact wherever you bought it or just dispose of it and get a new one)
  • “Warm water and any detergent at home should work great” – Dr Gabriela Andujar Vazquez in her interview with Medical Xpress
  • Don’t forget to wash the filter in your mask as well to prevent build-up of trapped air particles

Make sure to get a face mask that you know you can wash so that you don’t have to continue buying new ones. For example, our masks are 100% washable as you can either throw it in with your laundry or just use soap and warm water.

DO NOT continuously adjust or move your mask

Once your mask is on, try to avoid the urge to adjust or move it unless it is falling off of your face. Make sure that you have a mask that you don’t need to adjust or move in the first place.

DO NOT pull your mask off of your mouth to talk to people

The point of the mask is to protect you from other people and to protect other people from you. When you pull off your mask it completely defeats the exact purpose of why we wear it. Don’t worry, the other person knows how happy you are to see them and you don’t need to pull off your mask to show them your glowing smile.

DO NOT do any of the following:

  • Wear your mask under your chin
  • Wear your mask under your nose
  • Wear your mask above your chin

DO NOT think you are invincible with your mask

A mask is just one precaution of many that you must take.

Never forget to also:

  • Stay 6 feet apart from people
  • Be careful of what you are touching with your hands
  • Wash your hands frequently & have hand sanitizer at your ready

This shopper got creative with social distancing. All he needs is his mask and he will be doing everything right!

DO NOT put a mask on babies or children under 2 years old

DO NOT share your mask with others

Your mask is yours and yours only. It is one thing that you don’t have to share with others and that no one else probably wants to share with you!
