Thank you for helping to make sure for more than 2,500 children of families in need have new toys to open on Christmas morning. Many of the families you helped are struggling to pay their bills, or even put food on the table for circumstances beyond their control.
Each angel on the Angel Tree represents a child in need. So many of this this year’s angels were adopted by individuals or groups. Thank you for helping to make that happen. Any angel not selected was not forgotten. Volunteers hand-packed a bag with toys from one of the many community toy drives.
More than 75 volunteers from various groups helped distribute the toys to the parents receiving assistance this past weekend. The process began at 9am and continued until 4pm when the final bag went out the door. It takes careful coordination to roll hundreds of donated bicycles, and thousands of toys and stockings in just seven hours.
The happiness and relief for so many of the parents could be seen, knowing their children were taken care of, thanks to your support. Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. Because of your generosity, that will be experienced over and over again across Greensboro.
