Spreading Holiday Cheer This Christmasby Dutch Silverstein December 2, 2021
A&M Auto Service deeply cares about our customers, & we care about our surrounding communities as much as you do. Whether traveling to meet loved ones far away or staying in this Christmas, we know it is essential to have a well-maintained car to get you where you need to be to have a safe and memorable Christmas/holiday. We know that Christmas can be stressful and financially taxing time for some within our community. We learned in 2020, toy donations for our youth were at an all-time low, but the need for toys was up 60%, according to our local Charlotte Salvation Army. Let’s come together to help our community through donations!
Help by giving gifts to the little ones in our community, it not only brings joy to the children but to the parents too. Click here and contribute to the Charlotte, North Carolina sector for Marine Toys for Tots. Check out this list of the Salvation Army’s Local Angel Tree Drop Off Locations.
If you can spare the extra time and money this year, consider donating to one of these fantastic organizations to make a children’s Christmas brighter.
Another great way to support our communities during these holiday times can be done in your kitchen. When the kids are on winter break, or you have a couple of extra days off work, consider having a baking day with family & friends to share with a local veteran or donate your sweets to a local homeless shelter, Veterans association, or food bank. Not only are you creating memories inside of your home, but you never know the impact of your treats on others. Here is a recipe for America’s favorite dessert to share! If you are looking for places to donate, here are a couple of resources for you. Charlotte, NC food pantries and Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina.
If baking isn’t up your ally, consider donating what makes Christmas, Christmas. A tree.
Trees for Troops is an outstanding organization that provides free Christmas trees to the United States armed forces members in all branches. In partnership with FedEx & many volunteers, this organization has provided Christmas Trees since 2005 and has reached over 262,265 different families with a free tree. FedEx has logged more than 800,000 ground miles to deliver these trees to over 70 military bases in the U.S & overseas. Trees for Troops counts on donations from the public to make this program succeed year after year. Click here to learn more & donate.
