Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) December 28, 2011
In the early morning hours of December 26th 2011; Eric Claxton , CEO of real estate powerhouse Claxton Group Inc, announced to a boardroom of gathered staffers and company investors that for the 2011 holiday season and future holiday seasons the company had and would support a program that he called “Operation Christmas Angel”. The program is setup for the company to act as a source of holiday cheer for deserving, low income families within Georgia. The program functions on an anonymous basis with individuals writing or emailing in to tip the company off to a family in need during the holiday season. In an effort to afford these families deserved dignity, the company does not release the names or information of the families that the program benefits nor does the families being helped know whom or how their holiday wish was granted- Some simply say that a Christmas Angel must have been listening to their prayers. Not all request can be granted but the company will choose the most needy to give a helping hand to. – In this early morning meeting, Mr. Claxton announced that the company had helped forty needy families during the 2011 Christmas season! The program helped families all across Georgia as far north as Atlanta metro area and as far south as the sunny shores of the coastal empire of Savannah. The company uses its private financial resources to finance the needs of those helped through this program.
During the early morning, Mr. Claxton couldn’t contain his smile when one staffer asked why the company had helped a number of families specifically in Chatham and Johnson counties- Mr. Claxton simply stated that “Johnson County is my home, it is where I grew up as a child, and Savannah (Chatham County) is considered to be much the same for me. Home is where the heart is and I feel that those in our own back yard are not being helped- it is our duty to take care of those around us, in our own back yard, in our homes,- I have the goal that as business continues to grow, we can help others on a national scale. But for the 2011 holiday season, it was all about helping our neighbors, our fellow Georgians.”
One of the standout cases for the 2011 Christmas season was a lady stricken with cancer in the Savannah area whose family received help in the form of the company anonymously paying off the cost of a large medical bill that was on the verge of going unpaid. In addition the company made arrangements for the very young at heart lady to receive an assortment of Christmas gifts as so she could once again feel the same excitement and joy that all children (and those young at heart) feel on Christmas morning. The company does not want it known to the family how this Christmas gift was made possible to them- but hopes that in the future the this generosity will be passed on to others, and perhaps one day she will act as someone’s Christmas Angel.
