Opportunity Enterprises is seeking donors for its Angel Tree program which provides Christmas gifts for OE clients with little or no family.
“Without this program, the clients it helps would simply not receive any Christmas gifts,” says Sara Carter, Consumer Services Executive Assistant and Coordinator of the Angel Tree program. “This program is a great way for a donor to directly affect someone’s life in a very positive, meaningful way. It means so much to our clients to have Christmas presents to open. Everyone deserves a joyful Christmas.”
Individuals can support the program in one of three ways. First, individuals may request to be assigned a client or clients for whom gifts can be purchased from a wish list. Second, monetary donations, or donations of gift cards, can be made which will be used to purchase gifts for clients.
Finally, individuals may purchase an Angel Sampler through Opportunity Enterprises’ Simply Amazing Market. Angel Samplers include three small bags of gourmet popcorn and one pound of fudge, and a portion of sales will support the Angel Tree Program. Samplers may be purchased by visiting the Simply Amazing Market at 2801 Evans Avenue in Valparaiso. See www.simplyamazingtreats.com for more details.
Individuals interested in supporting OE’s Angel Tree program may contact Sara Carter at 219-464-9621, ext. 332, or by e-mail at Sara.firstname.lastname@example.org.
