Can You Help Us Play Santa ? – Salvation Army Annual 2009 Angel Tree Toy Drive

Salvation Army Annual 2009 Angel Tree Toy Drive

Belvidere Chiropractic Center is proud to partner with The Salvation Army on their Annual Holiday Angel Tree Program, which provides New Toys for Local Children of Needy Families.

Local Area Children are counting on you to make sure they have a Merry Christmas this year. Christmas is a time for celebrating, eating good food, opening gifts and being with the ones you love. Most of you would say it is the most joyous season of the year. However, others might disagree. Simply put, although most of you are fortunate enough to provide gifts for people you care about, the lady that lost her husband and is working to support her three kids making $20,000 a year is not so fortunate. To her, it is a time of struggle and a time of disappointment because she cannot provide what she would like to for her children.

Fortunately, there is a program called the Salvation Army Angel Tree that makes it all possible for Local Families like this. The Angel Tree was created back in 1979 by Majors Charles and Shirley White. The first year it was created, over 700 children received gifts and had a happier Christmas.

Since then, the Angel Tree is now helping over 41,000 children each year to have a better Christmas. It’s a very admirable program and we are pleased to say we participate.

The Angel Tree makes it easy to help, and insures that your gift of toys will go to a deserving local child. So please, while you are out shopping for your loved ones this year please 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 11th, 2009.

You can also shop online and have the toys delivered to us HERE:


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.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes, and you clothed me, I was sick, and you looked after me, I was in prison, and you came to visit me … whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you also did for me.” – Matthew 25:35-40.

“In the middle of a forest there’s a clearing by a stream where a mother holds her newborn and the child begins to dream. And he dreams of hopes unspoken when the tears of man will cease and his mother holds him closer for he is the Prince of peace. How the emperor and the pauper with the lion and the lamb kneel down before the infant for his peace they understand. Let the world rejoice together as it looks upon the stars, knowing every man’s our brother and that every child is ours.” – Paul O’Neill of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, from the song entitled ‘Prince of Peace’.

Thank you and have a Very Merry Christmas.

      Thank you so much for all your support, I really appreciate it.

  3. […] Food/Toys – This is a great way to “give back” to your community. During the holidays, set aside time on a Saturday and give treatments at no cost for a patient who brings in a new toy, clothing, or other gift and then donate them to “Toys for Tots” sponsored by the Marine Corps or other civic group. The same with a food drive. Give a complimentary treatment to any patient who brings in at least three items of food to donate to the local food pantry. For free publicity, you can contact the paper or local radio station and they will announce that you will be sponsoring these events. It’s great goodwill for your practice and you will feel great about yourself for sponsoring these community-oriented events. [One thing that I see a chiropractor doing is participating in the Angel Tree Toy Drive. Help Dr. Heins out with his cause before it's too late by going here.] […]
