Celebrating the Season – Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program
The Salvation ArmyÃ¢s Angel Tree program is a great way for companies to participate and help their community during the holiday season and all year long.
Lima, OH (PRWEB) December 21, 2011
Every year employees at American Trim’s headquarters in Lima, OH participate in the Salvation ArmyÃ¢s Angel Tree program. The Angel Tree program gathers information from local families that are not able to purchase many, or maybe any, gifts for their children to unwrap during the holidays.
In Lima, local companies volunteer to sponsor a given number of angels. Here at American Trim these are displayed on an Angel Tree poster. The employees select from the Angel Tree an ornament or tag that contains a childÃ¢s name, age, gender, clothing sizes, shoe size, gift requests and a code number. Usually there is about a two week window to go shopping and buy the gifts on the AngelÃ¢s list.
Once all the children have brand new Christmas presents, the Salvation Army comes back and picks up all the gifts. These are then distributed based on the code that was given to each AngelÃ¢s family. So the Salvation Army makes it easy for companies to participate by delivering the Angel ornaments and then picking up the presents from the local company.
Ã¢Å“The best thing about the Angel Tree program is that you know the childÃ¢s parent filled out the angel card that comes from the Salvation Army. Which means you are getting the kids exactly what they want for Christmas. You also know the parents get the joy of seeing their kidÃ¢s happy face on Christmas morning,Ã¢ comments an American Trim employee.
The Salvation ArmyÃ¢s Angel Tree program is a great way for companies to participate and help their community during the holiday season and all year long. American Trim wishes everyone the best during the holiday season and a wonderful new year.
