In a thank you post last year I mentioned that, our Salvation Army Annual Holiday Angel Tree Program was a huge success and that, your generosity and kindness brought happiness to many local children whose families were experiencing economic hardship who otherwise would have been unable to provide gifts for their children.
With all your help we were able to collect hundreds!! new toys for deserving children of needy families in the local communities who counted on you to make sure they had a Merry Christmas. In fact, there were so many generous donations that we had to have the Salvation Army come several times to pick up the toys since they were taking up our entire waiting area!
The Salvation Army then sorted and delivered your gifts to all the local little angels and just in time for Christmas!
This year many of these and unfortunately even more, local area children in the surrounding communities are counting on you once again to help make sure they have a Merry Christmas.
So please, while you are out shopping for your loved ones this year, remember to pick up some things for local children in need and then just drop them off during our normal hours, Starting Today and until December 16th, 2011.
If you want to know what to get, you can go to JCPenny’s site and Adopt an Angel in our group by simply clicking on the “adopt your ANGEL” button below to get started. Enter zip code: 07823, select any or all age groups, and either or both a girl or boy and simply have the toys shipped directly to us.
The Salvation Army will then pick up your generous donation and will make sure that your gifts is delivered to a local little angel in time for Christmas.
Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.~Eric Sevareid
