Annual Angel Tree Project
12/30/2013

Our SOA (Springs Of Achievement Team) sponsors an Angel tree every year which is loaded with tags for needy children in the Montgomery area. Associates pick a tag from the tree and they purchase a gift for a boy or girl and the appropriate age. The associate wraps the gift and places it in the SWF collection barrel. The gifts are then picked up by a local church and separated into boxes for needy families in the area. Springs Window Fashions is just one of the many companies and organizations in the Montgomery area that participate in this yearly event. Each needy family receives a box of food for a Christmas dinner and gifts for their children. The local Fire Co. helps to deliver the food and gifts on Christmas Eve via Fire Trucks, with Santa aboard.

 

Each year with the holiday season it seems to get harder and harder to find time to get everything done so this year we decided to try something different to make sure our local community still received our support. Associates could either donate $5 towards the purchase of a gift or bring in a gift for the Angel tree. The donors were then given the option to dress in casual wear for the week.

 

As expected, it was a huge success and we were able to raise $335 in just a matter of 4 days. The money was used to purchase around 40 awesome gifts for kids ranging from infant to twelve years of age.

Thank you to everyone who made this another successful event. A special thank you to Christy Snyder for collecting the money and doing the shopping. Thanks to all Christy’s little elves that helped her wrap all the gifts she purchased.
