Partner Spotlight: Grit Productions & Expositions and Foster + Fathom


Our purpose and programs would not be possible without the help of incredible partners nationwide that generously give their time and resources to further our mission. One of those longtime partners is the partners behind Grit Productions & Expositions and Foster + Fathom.  

Based in Grapevine, Texas, Grit Productions & Expositions is an event and production company providing clients all over the world with video production, content creation, live event & off-site event production and much more.  Grit Productions & Expositions, lead by Leigh and Kelly Massey, and their industry partner Foster + Fathom, lead by Steven Foster – have hosted our volunteer efforts for our Santa Boots Program for the last 6 years in one of their DFW area warehouses. They don’t just lend us a corner of their space either; they deck the halls for us with a festive, comfortable atmosphere that allows us to welcome in hundreds of volunteers to wrap and allows our staff areas to work out the many logistics as well.

As a partner truly as passionate about the program as we are, we are grateful to have seen our Santa Boots Program grow, evolve and improve right alongside their business! In spring of this year, their team moved into a beautiful new, warehouse and, we were able to expand alongside their growth to host more volunteers and support more families than ever before this holiday season.

This December we even had the pleasure of intertwining our efforts even more – first by having Veterans present at their IAEE booth in Dallas, TX to make stockings for the Veterans we serve and second by pairing their annual “Gritmas” staff holiday party with an evening wrapping shift during our volunteer week.

Needless to say, we are grateful for the Kelly, Steven and the entire team at Grit for all they do in hosting and supporting our efforts each year, and we look forward to many more years of growth, service and smiles!
