Suitland, MD (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
Employees of Andrews Federal Credit Union participated in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program and provided gifts for families in need in Burlington County, New Jersey.
The Angel Tree program is an opportunity for people to help local families and children in need during the holidays. Businesses, offices, organizations, churches, clubs families or any group that wishes to participate can request Angel Tree “tags” from The Salvation Army. Each tag represents the wishes of a real child or youth (toys, clothes, books, hats and gloves). Unlike a toy drive, the Angel Tree program fulfills families’ and children’s specific needs and wishes for the holiday season.
“Every year we look forward to adopting children from the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program,” said Maree Duncker, Andrews Federal Joint Base McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst branch manager. “The holidays are a special time of the year and we are glad to be able to bring happiness to families in the communities we serve.”
Andrews Federal adopted 25 Angel Tree children, ages newborn to 12 years, and bought over 30 gifts consisting of toys, clothes, books, hats and gloves.
