In 2014, EMH&T employees designed and wore their own Ugly Sweaters for the holidays.
The next year they stitched together a whole new contest. Employees bid silently on who had to wear, for one day, tacky-looking sweaters designed by co-workers. The sweaters had to be worn even in meetings with clients. This engaging challenge, the Ugly Sweater Contest, creates laughter, fun -- and additional donations toward Homeport’s mission, specifically the Winter Wishes program. Since launching the contest, EMH&T has donated over $14,000 toward Homeport’s mission to create a cornerstone of dignity, security and opportunity through quality affordable homes and strong communities.
