Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program
Since 2007, Athletico has been a proud supporter of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. In each participating Athletico location, an angel tree is displayed in the lobby. Gift tags are hung from the tree and employees and patients are encouraged to select a tag and purchase the gift listed. Gifts are dropped off and picked up by the Salvation Army shortly before Christmas.
The Angel Tree program is about helping kids have a brighter Christmas. Each fall, disadvantaged families have the opportunity to provide the Salvation Army with Christmas wish lists for the children in their lives. The Angel Tree program provides clothing, special-needs gifts, and other wished-for items such as toys and games.
Families enrolled in the program may have recently lost a job, or experienced an illness, death, or other crisis out of the ordinary. Those who participate in the program are truly giving the gift of a wonderful Christmas to lots of very thankful families.
