Great news, This year’s Angel tree is complete. We received a great response from the newsletter, collecting enough money to buy gifts for 26 people. As a bonus, the outreach committee has approved a matching donation of $1,500 which will be given to the South Shore Friends of the Homeless to cover additional needs and gift cards.
Many thanks to the Alves family who not only purchased all the gifts but alsoy worked together and wrapped them in record time! The gifts will be dropped off this weekend.. In years past, this effort would have run at least two more weeks, with a final collection after a church service and picture of all the gifts under the tree. I wanted to have the same experience here, so enjoy the picture of all the wrapped gifts under the Angel tree.
If you did not get the chance to donate to this years Angel Tree, please choose another charity of your choice.
Mark Alves for the Outreach Committee
Happy Holidays to all!
