MaintenX Sponsors 160 Children for the Holidays through the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program
On December 8th, we continued our company’s holiday tradition by making a huge drop off of toys and gifts at the Salvation Army center in Gulfport, FL to help kids that we “adopted” through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. The donation continues our holiday tradition which also includes volunteering at Metropolitan Ministries and giving back to our local community in any way we can.
For the fifth year in a row, we participated in the Angel Tree program. We organized a company campaign to encourage employees to “adopt” a child of a family in need, buy gifts for the child that included both “needs” and “wants” specified in wish lists by the child’s family, and bring the gifts to the office to be collected for a mass delivery to the Gulfport Salvation Army center.
The big day was on Dec. 8, when a team of about 10 MaintenX employees traveled in a convoy from our south Tampa office to the Salvation Army center in Gulfport to drop off all the toys and gifts. It was truly a team effort, we needed everyone’s help to assemble, transport, and drop off hundreds of gifts, including everything from clothes to toys, craft kits, tablets, bikes and scooters.
One of the best parts of our effort is that MaintenX made a company match for each child adopted by an employee to double the total amount of adopted children. This year was the best participation we’ve ever had which allowed us to adopt a total of 160 children and donate more than 1,000 toys and gifts!
A special thank you to everyone at MaintenX who helped make this holiday contribution possible! We couldn’t have done it without you and we look forward to everyone’s participation in the future so we can continue our company’s proud holiday charitable tradition for many years to come.
