The holidays mark a time for giving and we’re excited to give back to the community and those less fortunate with our annual participation in the Adopt-A-Family program.
Bradenton, Florida (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
Beall’s Inc., Beall’s Department Stores, Inc., and Bealls Outlet Stores, Inc., are excited to announce their annual participation in the Adopt-A-Family program. Every holiday season Beall’s sponsors families in need through the Adopt-A-Family organization, which provides holiday gifts to residents in need throughout the Florida area. This year, through the generosity of Beall’s employees, 81 families were adopted through this program, including 220 children.
“The holidays mark a time for giving and we’re excited to give back to the community and those less fortunate with our annual participation in the Adopt-A-Family program” says Bill Webster, Director of Public and Government Affairs. “We have been a big part of the Adopt-A-Family program for many years and we hope our Adopt-A-Family sponsorship encourages others to participate in the program or give back to the community in another way.”
Over 180 large “Family Boxes” were donated to the Adopt-A-Family facility. A number of Beall’s employees also volunteered their time and effort to help wrap presents and assist in preparing and loading all gift packages for the adopted families.
“We are grateful to our generous corporate employees who opened their hearts and wallets to help make the holidays special for needy families,” says Lorna Nagler, President of Beall’s Department Stores, Inc. “It is truly heartwarming to be a part of this great effort to help those that are in need this holiday season.”
The Adopt-A-Family organization serves hundreds of local Florida families in need and many disadvantaged children in Manatee County, Florida.
