Governor’s giving spirit
Gov. Bob McDonnell and his staff deliverd more than 100 Angel Tree donations to the Salvation Army Dec. 10 for struggling Central Virginia families.
The Angel Tree gifts from employees at the state’s executive office were part of a Salvation Army’s 33-year program, Angel Tree, which serves approximately 10,000 children each year, according to the governor’s office.
The children selected by the Salvation Army for Angel Tree come from families receiving either public assistance in Richmond City and the surrounding counties, services from on of 75 non-profit agencies, or families that qualify financially through open enrollment at the Salvation Army.
“For many families, adopting an Angel is a wonderful way to share the spirit of the season with others in our community who are less fortunate,” states a press release about the event. “Each Angel represents a real child in our community who needs your help.”
