There are times when having a network of neighborhood branches takes on a whole new meaning. That’s certainly the case in Flint, Michigan — as Enterprise employees have been pitching in with a neighborly effort to address the current water crisis.

Ever wonder what Santa does during his time off? He works at Enterprise Holdings, of course.
With the holiday spirit in full swing, some might say Driver Stewart S. appears to be a little jollier than normal, and that’s par for the course. Stewart doubles as a mall Santa and has even published a book called Diary of a Mall Santa to share the experience from behind the velvet ropes. “I’d been writing all my life,” says Stewart. “After hearing the things I heard, I decided to keep a journal by my chair to jot down all of the interesting stories.”
