The Online Division participated in 2 toy donations to adopt children in need during this holiday season.
The Angel Tree Program brightens the lives of thousands of children each year who otherwise would have no gifts to open during the holidays. Angel Tree is a volunteer-driven program – with people from all over donating toys, time and expertise – and is a testament to the power of people coming together to help their neighbors in need. The donated gifts are given to parents a few days before Christmas. The child believes the gifts are from his parents or Santa Claus, which helps to preserve the magic of Christmas.
Make a Miracle Christmas Program is in its tenth year of adopting the children of Northside Elementary School in Ft Lauderdale for the holidays and providing a gift for each student. Northside is one of the most impoverished schools in the county, most of these children are homeless and donations may very well be their only Christmas gift. These children, through their good behavior and performance in school, have earned the privilege of creating their own wish lists. The entire second grade was selected to be adopted by the campus.
A combined a total of 114 children were adopted by the online division making this holiday a little brighter for these under privileged children.
