MaintenX International is spreading holiday cheer this season by sponsoring 150 Angel Tree children in Florida. Employees personally bought gifts for 75 children in St. Petersburg, Orlando and Miami, and MaintenX matched that with sponsorships for 75 more children. MaintenX collected 35 bicycles and so many other toys and supplies the Salvation Army had to make two trips to haul all the goodies.
“Every child should be able to experience the joy of waking up on Christmas morning to a surprise from Santa,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “We feel lucky to have employees who care about the children in their community. Additionally, we love multiplying that goodwill by matching each employee Angel Tree child sponsorship.”
The Angel Tree program allows donors to select a tag from a tree for a child from a family that is unable to provide gifts and clothing to their children during the holidays. Each tag lists items the child wants, as well as items they need like shoes, clothes or diapers. MaintenX made sure each child received items from both categories – with many children who will receive every item on their list.
The children sponsored range in age from newborn to 11 years old. The most popular items among older children were bicycles and tablets.
Angel Tree parents and guardians will be invited to a special Salvation Army event where they will receive their child’s gifts, along with food items for Christmas Dinner to ensure a very merry holiday season for each family. MaintenX is glad to help make special Christmas memories possible for families in need.
