Haynie Baby Shower

This week we celebrated the future heir to the CablesAndKits kingdom (or craziness whichever you prefer) by having a baby shower for our owners, Craig and Christin.  Baby Haynie will be arriving very soon, so we had to make sure she had plenty of goodies to start life off the right way.  It was an awesome party with some amazing  food, and they got some really cool gifts.  We are all looking forward to meeting the little lady when she arrives into this world!

With broken hearts, we are all aware of the devastation that has taken place in Oklahoma. The pictures and videos that we have all seen on the news will stay with us for a long time. Many of us have cried over the children and others whose lives were lost, and we have rejoiced over the stories of true miracles that have taken place.

At CablesAndKits, one of our core values is to ‘Serve Others”. We feel this is a prime opportunity to serve the people and communities affected by this tragic event, and at the same time share the love of Christ with them.  The families that are affected by this disaster have immediate physical needs and we want to help. We also need to keep them in mind and in prayer as they continue to recover and work through all of the emotions during this time.

CablesAndKits is joining with Journey Church, a local church in the area affected, to help serve the communities that have been destroyed by the tornadoes. In speaking with the church, their immediate needs are both money and supplies. CK and staff are going to help and we want to get the word out to all of you so you know the ways in which you can help also.

Two of our awesome team members, Denisia and Jordan, are spearheading this initiative and have been working very hard to get everything set up here at the office.  We are making our office available as a collection site for others in the community and surrounding areas that want to contribute supplies.  We are planning several

CK Sticker Madness

Have you caught the madness yet??? It is starting to go around! This week we rolled out our awesome new CK stickers and it has been quite fun seeing where these things are popping up, not only in the office but with our customers as well! Our staff has gotten very creative in showcasing the stickers, but so have some of you.  We have gotten a few pics of the stickers showing up on cars, phones, and even their children’s toys…haha! If you got a sticker already, please send us a pic of it “in action”, we would love to see how you are showing your CK spirit!

Top 25 Award

We had the privilege of being a part of the 2013 Pinnacle Small Business Awards last Friday. CablesAndKits was selected as one of the Top 25 Small Businesses our of the 150 businesses that were nominated this year.  It was a phenomenal experience for our owners, Craig and Christin Haynie, as well as the CK team.  It was very humbling being at the ceremony with such amazing, successful businesses that have shown significant growth and innovation over the past year.  We heard some great stories while there!
