REMINDER TO ALL ANGELS AND FRIENDS
WE NEED YOUR REVIEWS FOR BEING RATED AS ONE OF THE TOP RATED NON PROFITS FOR 2019. THIS IS THE FINAL WEEK BEFORE THE VOTE GOES IN! PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES AND LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THE ANGELS AND THEIR IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY. IT’S ALL UP TO YOU…. SEE DETAILS BELOW TO WRITE A REVIEW!
NOVEMBER 12TH 8:30 – 9:30 AM
PASADENA COMMUNITY CHURCH, LIFE ENRICHMENT CENTER
227 70TH STREET SOUTH,
ST PETERSBURG, FL
NOVEMBER 12TH is the deadline for our Christmas Wish List from the various agencies we work with over the holidays. A member from each of the Agencies that the Angels create a magical Christmas for the kids, will be sharing with each of you why Christmas is so important to these children.
For those of you that are unable to make our meeting, we hope you will be a part of creating MAGIC for these children who often have little to smile about. November and December are out busiest months and we need everyone to participate in order to make this happen. Last year we put over 250 smiles on little faces and this year that number will grow since abuse and neglect is at an all time high!
Once we receive all of the wish list from the Agencies we work with, we will send out another email so we can keep everyone in the loop. This is a “feel good” time of the year and there is nothing more gratifying than giving to those in need!
Also, we will have the large Christmas Bags that we use for the Christmas Presents so that every child has his or her own wish list Christmas Presents by Agency for the day of our Celebration. For those individuals not at the November Meeting needing a Christmas Bag, we will make them available upon request. We purchase them from Home Goods or TJ Maxx for .99 if you would like to purchase your own. Feel free to contact Sandy Kearney 727 804 7710 or [email protected] if you have questions.
We hope you can take time from your busy schedules to come and be a part of making a difference in the lives of the children we advocate for 24/7.
Bring a friend or two, our meetings are always so much fun!
PLEASE RSVP ASAP THAT YOU ARE ATTENDING
YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS THIS MEETING!
Amy Foster, Executive Director, Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay – Amy has a couple of things to share with our Angels of the impact we are making and also, a request of a child in need for Christmas.
Damia Kelly – Director of Community Treatment, Directions For Living – Damia has children in families that are living in a motel for Christmas, she has homeless individuals and families who need to be adopted over the holidays that would not have Christmas without the Angels.
Laurallyn Segur – Senior Director of Licensing, Foster Care, Eckerd Kids – The Angels will be adopting 3 families from Eckerd this year and Laurallyn will be giving each of you a little history of why these families need a little Hope over the holidays.
Kelly Johnson -Program Administrator Child Protection Investigation Division, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office – Every Christmas, the Sheriff’s Office has a special case that will impact a child who has suffered at the hands of their abuser. Kelly will be sharing this request with our Angels.
Byron Pressley – Program Director, Friends of the Children Tampa Bay – For the past 4 years, the Angels have adopted 25 girls and 25 boys that are in this program. These children have a great deal of challenges and if the Angels did not assist with this undertaking, these children would not have a Christmas.
Linda Thielman, PAT+ Program Director, Healthy Start Coalition of Pinellas, Inc. – Linda or someone from her staff will share the impact the Angels have had on these young mothers and families who have been faced with challenges and over 80 mothers were adopted last year by so many wonderful Angels who created Christmas Magic for these little babies and toddlers.
Last Year, we were blessed with so many businesses and individuals who adopted all of the children that represent each of these agencies and there was no way to describe the magic of a room filled from top to bottom with individual gift bags for every child’s wish in a large gymnasium. It was a morning joy and celebration just knowing the smiles we would be creating Christmas Morning!
A very important part of the joy of living is the joy of giving
