How Does the Angel Tree Work?
Every year The Salvation Army has a Nashville Angel Tree. The Angel Tree consists of children and seniors that are less fortunate than others. There is a picky process to get chosen to receive assistance for children and families.
Typically, assistance is applied for at a local Salvation Army or it can be done online. A member or volunteer from the Salvation Army will then interview the needy family applicants and make a decision from there.
There are hundreds of babies, toddlers, children and seniors to choose from and this year we decided to start helping out.
We actually heard about the Nashville Angel Tree from a vendor of ours, Trane sales. Instead of having a company gift swap, our friends at Trane Sales all adopt an Angel each year. We were truly touched by their generosity and have decided that we are going to follow in their footsteps.
It’s very easy to adopt an Angel from the Salvation Army Angel Tree. You can either go to Salvation Army, or do like we did and go online. When going online, you can view all children and senior Angels and randomly select, or you can choose age range and gender.
Jewell Mechanical’s Gifts for Angels
This year, Jewell Mechanical chose 6 Angels to adopt. Several of our employee’s adopted angels too.
We had a great time picking out gifts for our Angels but the hard part is seeing all of the angels that didn’t get chosen. You can still give to the Angels that were not selected.
It’s Never Too Late to Help Forgotten Angels
The deadline to adopt was December 6, but it’s not too late. You can drop off unwrapped toys to Daily’s or Twice Daily’s Convenience Stores for the forgotten angels. The toys that are dropped off are given to the angels that were not selected or picked up for adoption.
So get up, get out, and drop a toy off to brighten a child’s or senior’s Christmas Morning.
