Russell Straub has a big heart.
His Christmas gift to his 37 employees at Loanbright.com on Meadow Drive not only made the season bright for them, but also for downtown Evergreen businesses.
Straub gave his employees each $100 with orders that the money must be spent at downtown stores. If they spent all the money, he would give them another $100. Add to that lunch at One World Café.
“This really isn’t about me,” Straub said, “but I wanted to do something fun, something memorable.”
