MVSA Service Project
For the last 30 years, the Salvation Army Angel Tree program has provided Christmas gifts to underprivileged children up to the age of 12 years. Last year this program served approximately 1,500 children in Montgomery County. For many of these children, these will be the only gifts they receive this year. It has been MVSA's privilege to participate for the past 3 years.
Your team can participate in this service project by either adopting an Angel or through donating to the Toy Drive.
If your team would like to support the Toy Drive, toys, books, games, Legos, trucks, cars, art supplies, action figures, and dolls are a few of the age-appropriate suggestions. You may also donate coats, clothing, hats, gloves, etc.
Please collect the donations at your practices between December 1st through 5th. All gifts are due to me no later than Friday December 6th. You can either drop the things by my house or contact me to pick the donations up from your practice.
Contact Ron or Gayle Hanson for more information!
