Help Make the Holidays Brighter

 

The MCB Young Lawyers Division is once again collaborating with The Salvation Army Angel Tree Program to provide gifts to children in our community.  This is an excellent opportunity to make the holidays brighter for children who come from low-income families and/or live in foster care or group homes.

 Holiday Gift

If you or your firm are interested in buying gifts for children in our community, please e-mail yldcommunityservice@meckbar.org with the following information:

1.     How many "Angels" you would like to "adopt";

2.     A contact name; and

3.     The e-mail address to deliver your "Angel" wish list(s). 

 

You will be provided an "Angel" tag that indicates the child's clothing size and his/her wish list, which makes shopping a breeze! 

 

The Salvation Army encourages sponsors to buy appropriate gifts at prices they feel comfortable spending. As a rule of thumb, however, gifts per angel typically average $50 to $150. If you plan to spend more than this amount, please consider adopting more than one angel so that we can serve as many children as possible. 

 

Angels can be dropped off at any Salvation Army location. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Stacey Vandiford at yldcommunityservice@meckbar.org

 

All requests for "Angels" need to be received by Fri. Dec. 5 and gifts must be dropped off by Sat. Dec. 12.  

 

Please consider participating in this very worthy cause, which is sure to get your holidays off to a wonderful start!
