Circle of Love Angel Tree Project Provides Gifts for 55 Children
Published on Dec 20, 2019
The Circle of Love Angel Tree Project was a huge success this year. College employees were able to provide gifts for a total of 55 children and also reach out to a family in crisis this holiday season. Over $700.00 was raised in the effort to get gifts in the hands of underprivileged children in the Somerset area as well as to 10 children of SCC students who were in need.
The tireless efforts of our committee members were greatly appreciated. Tina Watson, Dana Muse, Sandy Bourne, Natalie Winstead, Deana Caron, Pam Bridgman, Ken Jacques, and Jeff Brickley.
We had several affiliated activities to raise funds and awareness of the children in need through an online auction, silent auction, and child sponsors.
The gifts were delivered on Friday, December 13th, and will be under the trees of the children that were sponsored in plenty of time for Christmas morning.
The committee wants to especially thank all those at SCC who participated in the Silent Auction, purchased a Silent Auction item, donated a Silent Auction item, sponsored a child, donated financially, helped with the gift round up, or just wished us well in thoughts and prayers. Everyone who contributed (both small or large) is greatly appreciated.
George Martinez, SCC professor, said, “this project reminds us all of how it is truly better to give than to receive, as it brings hope to the lives of those in need during the holiday season”.
