T H E S P I R I T O F the holiday season is a spirit of generosity. We give gifts. We gather together (if only virtually) to share the bounty of our holiday tables. And in the Lehigh Valley, we band together to support those in need. In this issue, we draw our focus to the hard-working, local small businesses and nonprofit organizations at the heart of our community. They have worked tirelessly to overcome tremendous odds. They have been there for us. And they need our support now more than ever.
Start by reading about the work of some of the Lehigh Valley’s dedicated nonprofit organizations in our 17-page Giving Guide feature, starting on page 34. The challenges of this year have made their work seem downright impossible at times, and we are in awe of the ways in which our local nonprofits have continued supporting our community in spite of unprecedented obstacles. We guarantee you’ll be inspired— and we encourage you to consider supporting one or more of them through donations, volunteering, or both. Over the past nine months, our small business neighbors have navigated an extraordinary and ever-changing landscape. They’ve gotten creative and found new ways to do business, keeping us safe all the while. Our annual Gifting Guide, starting on page 12, makes it easy for you to support local retailers this holiday season, with nearly 20 pages of giftable items curated and created right here in the Lehigh Valley. More than
ever, we encourage you to skip the big-box stores and keep it local: whether in person or online, shopping small has never been so important. As we close out a year like no other, we hope you feel as proud as we do to be a part of this community. A community that comes together to weather storms. A rich and diverse community where neighbors help neighbors—where kindness is second nature, where giving is a given. And fueled by that pride, we hope you’ll read through this issue and be inspired to act: volunteer, donate, shop, support, give. ‘Tis the season, after all. LOVE , KIER A WILHELM & THE FIG INDUSTRIES TEAM

F R E S H FA C E Welcoming new businesses to Bethlehem.
Fresh Face: XR Studioz AFTER A LONG CAREER in emerging technologies, traveling the country in sales and marketing roles for Verizon, Microsoft, Palm, and various startups, Freedom High School graduate Amy came home to the Lehigh Valley to pursue a dream of creating a business that would help others. She’s “always been a bit of a geek,” so it wasn’t a surprise that technology would play a role, but just as important was creating a business known for its positive and supportive local community approach.
2550 BRODHEAD ROAD, SUITE. 210
XR Studioz is a place where Amy and her team, Dana Donatelli, Director of Fitness and on the business side Dr. Laura Camus, use technology to build community and deliver unique experiences—fitness and wellness classes, afterschool enrichment programs, eSports, a virtual reality (VR) Lab for school partnerships, corporate team-building events, business training and technology consulting. “We use VR and other technologies, but the magic is in how tech is blended seamlessly behind the scenes,” says Amy, “like Zoom fitness classes, the projection
of a virtual course in the spin room to give riders a real-world feel, the ability to offer multiple escape rooms in one room, or an immersive training where you can simulate real-world situations in a conference room.” But Amy wants you to know that you don’t have to understand tech when you walk in the door. “You actually shouldn’t feel the tech at all—you’ll just feel welcomed,” she says. “We use technology to be more efficient at getting results for people and to give people incredibly fun classes, lessons
The Future of Fitness & fun i s i n t h e Lehigh Valley!
and gaming they can’t get anywhere else. We use it to offer cutting-edge solutions to businesses. But we don’t use it to replace that personal touch necessary to form connections with people and get to know them so we can help them with their goals.” Virtual Reality plays a big part in XR Studioz gaming, in-school, after-school, edutainment (entertainment with an educational aspect) and corporate programs. “The first time I put on a VR headset and played Beat Saber I was blown away!” But VR isn’t just for
gaming. It’s a platform that is already being used by major companies with immense benefit, which XR Studioz would like to bring to the Lehigh Valley. “We offer not only corporate wellness programs and team-building, but also virtual reality training and a VR Lab where companies can see and test the latest VR solutions available, or local colleges can partner with us for lab time, VR curriculum building, or software development,” says Amy. Technology plays a more subtle part in XR Studioz traditional fitness classes
like Barre, Cardio, HIIT, Yoga and Kickboxing—there’s no tech per se in those classes, only a forward-thinking mentality to offer the best and latest classes and instruction with the best instructors. Alternatively they have TechFit, where each workout uses some sort of tech, like The Mirror, Blazepods and XRfit, a class that uses VR to gamify your workouts. “We want to help everyone move, improve and have fun,” says Amy, “because when all three of those work together, the results are powerful.”

AUTHENTIC Leading the way through innovation and example.
Authentic: Councilwoman Olga Negrón “ I T ’ S M Y PA R E N T S ’ FA U LT,” laughs Olga Negrón, community organizer, Bethlehem City Councilwoman and Community Liaison for HGSK Law Firm. Growing up in Puerto Rico, she watched her mother and father, dedicated Rotarians, collect and distribute supplies to those in need of hurricane relief. Passionate community advocates, they raised money for neighbors in need. “Today I am who I am because of my parents,” she says. “They taught me service before self.” The youngest girl of eleven children, she learned early to find and use her voice. But she wasn’t fluent in spoken English before moving to Tallahassee, Florida, then Austin, Texas, as a young mother. It was in Florida that she learned English with a group of multilingual speakers through the local La Leche League, and felt firsthand the power of community support.” None of us felt embarrassed
or afraid,” she says, “We were all trying to find a way to communicate.” She moved to the Lehigh Valley in the late 1990s to raise her three children near family after a divorce, which was the right decision. But “we’ve gone through struggles here. From day one, I saw it”—in schools, community services, particularly among the Latinx community: how children were treated differently, as less than, with no expectations. “I decided that was going to be my fight,” she says. “That’s what I’ve been doing since. Trying to connect individuals to services and information, and help people realize a vision.” As community liaison for HGSK Law Firm in Allentown, she’s involved in outreach and intake, and serves as an interpreter. Her history of engagement in the Valley makes her ideally suited to connect clients with necessary services. As COVID-19 spread in the spring, warehouse employees,
many of whom are Latinx, required critical assistance with worker’s compensation. Olga answered the call. Serving and representing the people of Bethlehem, through City Council or HGSK Law, on the board of the Bethlehem Area Public Library or at a local block party, is where Olga’s heart lies. “There are some beautiful partnerships in Bethlehem,” she says, “but there could be more. I’m hopeful that more and more people will feel comfortable, especially people of color, being a part of the community. But for that to happen, they need to feel welcomed, not just invited.” Building strong communities requires communication and action, and a commitment to serving the public, exactly what Olga’s parents taught her. “When people ask me, what is your day like? I don’t know! No one day looks like any other,” she says. “I do what I feel needs to be done. Everything I can.”

brings lots of festive local markets and craft shows to the Lehigh Valley—and along with them, a chance to support our independent local vendors who operate outside the “brick and mortar” model. But this is no typical holiday season, with many in-person markets cancelled. What to do? Never fear! We’ve put together a selection of some of the Lehigh
Valley’s best local makers, artists, and creators for you. We know that “paging through” is not the same as “strolling through”… but we think you’ll love browsing these pages and supporting these independent, local makers. Pick up a unique piece of jewelry, a hand-poured candle, a piece of art for that blank wall. And feel great about the fact that you supported local, too.
Barbara Schulman Artist Barbara Schulman loves to take something common—like old jeans, for example—and make something new: painting, quilting, stitching, dyeing, and inventing fabric designs to create unique textile artworks. She enjoys “playing” with her sewing machine to see what it can do that is out of the ordinary. You’ll always find something distinctive in Barbara’s quilts. Surprising materials such as clothing labels, vintage lace, mirrors, and even cut-up credit cards may be stitched onto her hand-dyed fabric! Thanks to these unexpected delights, Barbara’s work always provokes conversation and thought. Mixed media art

The Allentown Rescue Mission helps homeless men 18 years and older reintegrate back into society with its three distinct programs (Emergency Shelter, Transformation Program, and Clean Team Re-employment Program).

Monocacy Farm Project Sustainability | Stewardship | Education
B Y U S I N G L A N D and resources at Monocacy Manor, Bethlehem in the Franciscan tradition, the Monocacy Farm Project (MFP) models stewardship and care of the earth, engages and educates the community, and—perhaps most importantly—strives to alleviate hunger. From April through October each year, the MFP plants and harvests organically-grown produce that feeds the needy through community partnerships with food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens. Community gardeners, youth groups, retreatants, church and school groups, organizations, and individuals also find fulfillment in these fields by taking part in sustainable gardening, educational programs, and other projects that give back to underserved communities.
M I S S I O N Feeding the Hungry…Caring for the Earth…Growing Healthy Community G E T I N V O LV E D The Monocacy Farm Project relies on help from volunteers year-round—from seasonal Garden and Festival Volunteers to Clerical and Grantwriting Volunteers.

GIVING BACK Making a difference in the lives of others.
Giving Back: Winston Alozie FOR WINSTON ALOZIE , CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Bethlehem, it’s all about the kids. He knows from experience: he was a kid, 13 and new to Bethlehem from Shreveport, Louisiana in 2001. The Club was a place not only to make friends (“and eat snacks, food my parents didn’t want us to eat”), but for necessities–like heat–through the hard cultural and socioeconomic shift. “The Club has a storied tradition of being here for the most vulnerable children and families,” he says. And the work is about letting those kids and families know “their presence here matters. And is appreciated.” Winston first worked for the club in 2003 as a summer camp junior staffer at Yosko Park. He returned every summer after that, graduating from Freedom High School and Edinboro University with a BA in developmental psychology. He joined the Club in 2012
as program director, then unit director, for the now-closed South Side location, and was also program director at a BGCB program at Broughal Middle School, before assuming his current role of CEO in 2019. He never thought he’d hold the position he holds now, but is passionate about the work of giving back. “I try to empower kids in ways that I didn’t feel empowered,” he says, grateful for how the staff of the Club once championed him as a young person. “Great futures come out of our programs.” The Bethlehem Club was organized 90 years ago by prominent Bethlehemites on the eve of the Great Depression; supporting the community during another time of great uncertainty is exactly what it was built for. “I want to live on and grow their legacies,” says Winston. “I want us to be able to provide for the kids that we serve, the kids of color, poor kids, kids who
are just kids who need somewhere to be: a place where they can be part of something, and help build up their lives.” The Club opened its doors this June and serves many families of essential workers who are not as celebrated– the grocery store clerks, gas station attendants, in-home caregivers. At a time of remote and hybrid learning, the Club has programs where children can gather safely, with technology access and tutoring. This year hasn’t been easy for anyone, but “I’ve seen the good in humanity,” says Winston, citing the dedicated financial donors, the local businesses donating food and supplies. “We can’t survive without people giving,” he says. “If you feel this work matters, you can be a part of making sure it still happens.” To learn more about their programs, to volunteer, or to donate, visit bgcob.org.
