What to My Wondering Eyes Should Appear – Thank You For Your Donations!
Our 2015 Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree gift drive was a huge success, and we’d like to thank everyone who contributed. Our San Diego offices, located in Downtown, La Jolla, Vista and Escondido, welcomed clients, friends and family to join our efforts to bring a brighter Christmas to families in need.
Our Vista and Escondido offices collected toys for specific requests from children, while our La Jolla and Downtown offices focused on a list of items the Salvation Army hoped to receive to complete family gift packages.
The response was tremendous, and we were able to collect approximately 100 gifts and several bins of food. In addition, we were blown away when one of our clients at our Escondido office (you know who you are!) wrote a $1,000 check toward the Salvation Army’s Angel Giving Tree program.
To further support the Salvation Army, several of our staffers spent time as bell ringers during the holiday season. Our president, Steve Sefton (also a Metropolitan Board Member for the Salvation Army), rang the Salvation Army bell to drum up donations for the red kettle at Fashion Valley Mall. Several of our Escondido branch staff, Kim Poole, Taryn Diehl (with her family), Mike Churchwell and Norma Soto, rang the bell at Major Market in Escondido.
The holiday spirit of giving is magical as it brightens the lives of both the giver and the receiver. We feel so lucky to be in the company of so many generous people and to have had the chance to make Christmas special for many San Diego families in need.
