Hanover, MD (PRWEB) December 30, 2015
The winter holidays are a magical time for families: gifts for children, delicious dinners for the whole family, and hopefully, quality time with loved ones. Too often though, money is tight and celebrating these holidays with gusto is impossible or hugely stressful. This can hit military families especially hard, with budgets often being tight or parents occasionally being deployed.
This year, ClearShark, a small IT sales company based in Hanover, MD, decided to help make the holiday season a little less stressful for some of these military families by participating in the Soldiers’ Angels Adopt-A-Family program. The Soldier’s Angels Adopt-A-Family program helps give these families the kind of Christmas or other holiday celebration that they deserve. With this program, volunteers learn about the families, purchase gifts for the children, and provide a holiday meal for these military families.
ClearShark sponsored 37 families this year, purchasing gifts for 109 children and their parents and providing each family with a holiday meal. Twenty-seven of these families were in DC/Maryland/Virginia, while the 10 other families were in California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Indiana, West Virginia, and Florida. Twenty-five ClearShark employees and management volunteered to shop for these families, coordinate a holiday meal, wrap presents, and deliver the gifts.
