TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- This winter, MaintenX is bringing joy to 140 Salvation Army Angel Tree children by answering their holiday wish lists. This is the second year that MaintenX has helped more than 130 families in need to ensure that they have gifts under the tree on Christmas morning.
"MaintenX feels incredibly blessed to be able to give back to our community in such a special way," said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX's VP of Business Development. "Every child should know the joy of finding a surprise under the tree during the holidays. We're thrilled the MaintenX team supported so many deserving kids around our region."
Employees personally bought gifts for 68 children in St. Petersburg, Fla., and MaintenX matched that goodwill with sponsorships for 72 more children – bringing the total to 140 children that will experience the joy of waking up on Christmas morning to gifts from their wish list. MaintenX collected so many toys, bikes, and supplies that the team was able to load up four vehicles and two trailers in order to deliver the gifts to the Salvation Army.
"Not every organization needs multiple vehicles to deliver gifts. We are so lucky to have team members that care so much about the children in their community," said Schaphorst.
The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program allows donors to select a tag from a tree that list items a child wants, as well as items they need like clothes, shoes or diapers. Each tag represents a child from a family that is unable to provide gifts and clothing to their children during the holidays.
The children sponsored range in age from newborn to 15 years old. This holiday season, most wished-for items among older children were bicycles, tablets, Jojo Siwa accessory kits and Legos. MaintenX worked hard to ensure each Angel Tree child will receive at least one wish and one need from their list.
Closer to Christmas, there will be a special Salvation Army event where Angel Tree parents and guardians will receive their child's gifts, in addition to food items for Christmas Dinner to ensure a very merry holiday season for every family.
MaintenX is glad to take a moment during the holiday season to help local families create special memories. To learn more about MaintenX and the full range of services they provide, visit http://www.maintenx.com.
