They miss big holidays like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter but also birthdays and little celebrations too.
Many of the children we serve at Alexander Youth Network are away from their family for extended periods of time. Despite being away from family, our kids are fortunate enough to have the Angel Network. Through the Angel Network and every angel in our community, our kids don’t miss out on holidays, birthdays, and the little joys that these celebrations bring.
Each year, the Angel Network provides our kids with toys, clothes, bikes, and books during the holiday season and throughout the year. These in-kind items come from individual donors, families, and our corporate sponsors including; Lowe’s Home Improvement, The Spokes Group, Metrolina Nephrology Associates, and our newest corporate sponsor Felix Sabates’ Ford. We even received 19 new Razor scooters from our youngest donor, Mary Linda, founder of Beads for Needs.
The gifts we receive through the Angel Network bring smiles to our kids’ faces and are just one of the many ways that we show the kids at Alexander that they are loved. Throughout the holiday season, we have over 65 individuals donate items for Angel Network and more than 170 volunteers help organize, wrap, and label gifts.
Thank you to our generous angels who help make the holiday season and every celebration at Alexander special for our children and families.
To get involved and make an in-kind donation to the Angel Network, please contact Ashley Nieves at email@example.com.
