VERO BEACH –Looking for a way to make a difference in the community? Looking for a great feel good project for your employees during Christmas? Looking for a way to give back? How about participating in The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program?
Simply put, the Angel Tree program provides new toys and clothes for needy area children, as well as gifts for needy senior citizens, at Christmas time. For many, the gifts and clothes they receive through The Salvation Army’s Angel tree program are the only gifts they will have to open on Christmas morning.
A sponsoring company or corporation can host a toy drive, adopt angel tree tags or place a Christmas tree in a secure, high-pedestrian traffic area or lobby. Trees are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child who will receive the gift. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts as described on the tags. The toys are then delivered to the unit and later picked up by the parent to distribute on Christmas Day.
In 2009, companies and organizations made a difference, by providing toys and clothes for 3138 people from 640 families.
This year we anticipate serving a significantly higher number of families, and that is where you come in. Be an Angel this Holiday – become an Angel Tree sponsor, hold a Toy Drive or volunteer your time
