Hilldrup’s Stafford Branch Enjoys Summer Carnival

As the weather and the moving industry’s peak season heats up, Hilldrup’s Stafford branch found a way to cool down – and give back! On June 20th, all Stafford employees were encouraged to join Hilldrup’s Summer Carnival during their lunch break to enjoy some fun in the sun.

Our Summer Carnival consisted of corn hole, a photo booth to snap a silly photo to take home, and cotton candy served by our friends from the Rappahannock United Way (RUW). Donations were accepted during the carnival to benefit RUW either by cash or via DipJar so that donations could be made with ease.

And let’s not forget the best part: the dunk tank! As a way to relieve some stress and stay cool, a handful of Hilldrup leaders volunteered to sit in the dunk tank while employees lined up to take their best shot. You might just see some familiar faces, so be sure to watch all the fun here!

We truly appreciate everyone who volunteered to make this event such a blast and special thanks to the RUW team. Thanks to everyone’s generosity, we raised over $120 for the Rappahannock United Way, excellent job team!

Hilldrup employees or simply imposters? It was hard to tell at our photo-booth! Stafford employees were welcome to use fun props to snap a photo to take home.
