The season of hope and magic is quickly approaching. This is also the time of year when many Vail parents feel the stress of how they will provide that hope and magic for their children. Thankfully, we have many generous community members who are in search of opportunities to give. Angel Tree is the perfect community connection that bridges those who have the means to give to Vail families, who are struggling this holiday season.
The Angel Tree program anonymously matches our children in need with community members who are willing to buy gifts for them. These Christmas lists are by no means your typical letters to Santa. We have children, right here in Vail, who ask for coats, blankets, and socks on their wish lists. No gift or financial contribution is too small to make a difference in the lives of our kids.
Last year Angel Tree helped to connect over 200 Vail children with community members who ensured that Santa came to their house on Christmas Eve. We would love to be able to reach even further this holiday season! Join us in giving our Vail children a very important gift, something that Santa instills in all of us: love and the belief in that which we cannot see.
If you would like to sponsor a child in the Vail Angel Tree program, please contact Heather Stough at firstname.lastname@example.org or (520) 879-3915.
