Because of Compeer’s limited resources, we need to rely on community businesses to help with our tremendous need of giving gifts to the people we serve. Each Angel card represents a child or an adult who is part of the Compeer program.
If you have ever come to any of our Holiday Parties in December, you would see the incredible generosity of some of our Compeer volunteers, local companies, restaurants, churches, and families who become Compeer Angels and have gone above and beyond in assisting us with gathering gifts for all our people.
At these holiday parties, we give every child, adult and senior a special gift. Last year we had over 350 people attend these parties. We have quite the task trying to come up with gifts for everyone.
We have many people who attend our parties and say that their Compeer Holiday gift is the only gift they receive.
As many of you have noticed, the gifts are wonderful. Beautiful blankets, sheets and comforters, vacuum cleaners, clothes, gift certificates, and every toy imaginable, are only a sampling of what fills our entire office space to the ceilings (almost!).
Compeer would like to thank the people, the businesses and organizations for helping us to keep the holidays at its best for all the children adults, seniors and Veterans that we serve by donating toys and gifts through our Angel Tree program.
