212 Gives Back 2020: Wagon Wheel

Dec 23, 2020 | 212 Articles, Community, Giving

2020 has brought more challenges than any of us would have ever anticipated. Now more than ever we must support each other—we must pour into our communities and stand by those in need. Every winter, each employee selects a local charity to support by donating a 212 Christmas bonus. May we all cultivate deeper levels of generosity, gratitude, and selflessness this holiday season.

Katie Yocum’s family has been involved with Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts for more than 30 years. “My father has been in countless shows, and I have participated in several,” shares the content & social media specialist. “Wagon Wheel has been a part of my life since I was a child, and I look forward to their performances each summer and winter.”

Katie particularly appreciates the Wagon Wheel’s focus on the next generation. “The Wagon Wheel provides classes and workshops for children and young adults in the community who love the arts. From dancing to acting to putting together a full-length show, these kids receive guidance from professional actors and vocal coaches. They are given a space to explore their emotions and come out of their shells,” says Katie. “Wagon Wheel has put on Broadway-level performances for more than 60 years, and I hope they are around for at least 60 more!”
