Help provide new clothing for 850 area children:
Join I-Drive District's 14th Annual Salvation Army Angel Tree Program
The I-Drive Business Improvement
District and the I-Ride Trolley Service are again partnering with the Salvation
Army and WKMG News 6, for its 14th annual Angel Tree program for the 2015
holiday season. I-Drive’s goal this year is to provide new clothing for 850
children in the Orange County community.
"More than 4,000 disadvantaged
families have registered for holiday assistance with the Salvation Army this
year," says Luann Brooks, executive director of the International Drive
"This year, we are working with
more than 30 I-Drive industry businesses on this program that offers an easy
way for anyone in the area to help a family in need during the holiday season.I-Drive looks forward to brightening the
holiday season for children in our community. "
It’s this simple:participating accommodations, attractions,
restaurants and other businesses in the I-Drive adopt one Angel all the way up
to 100 Angels to distribute to their staff.All participating businesses are invited to deliver their Angel Tree donations
at the “Angels on I-Drive” open house which takes place Dec. 9 from 9:30
a.m.-2:30 p.m. at the I-Drive District office located at 7081 Grand National
Drive, Suite 105.
Since 1865, the Salvation Army has
supported those in need with this nationally recognized program that provides
new clothing or toys for underprivileged children. The structure of the program
makes it easy and convenient for everyone to help a child during the holidays.
The District began participating in
this program in 2002 and each year it continues to grow. The objective is to
provide gifts of only new clothing for as many children as possible whose
families registered for holiday assistance or children from child care centers
and foster homes.
