RD's Giving Tree: A Community Effort
140 Members... 70 Gifts... 1 Special Cause...
Results Driven is lucky to have members like Theresa. This holiday season, she approached RD about participating in her church's Angel Tree project. For 20 years, St Patrick's Church in Highland Mills has collected toys and essentials for families in need. For 12 years, Theresa has been contributing.
This year the church expanded its efforts, asking other local churches and businesses to participate. When Theresa heard of RD's Christmas tree, decorated with super-hero ornaments, she knew the Results Driven community could handle the task at hand.
Her first flight of tags carried the wishes of 20 children. The next day, when Theresa came back, they were all gone. In the end, 60 tags were taken by RD members, and in true Results Driven community fashion, 70 gifts were delivered.
A skateboard, a bike, basketballs, footballs, table top games, stuffed animals, a baby doll stroller and pajamas all made their way under our tree. At night, it was truly a sight to see as the gym turned into a perfect picture of Christmas morning. It brought happiness to our members to see these gifts as they came in for their workout. Many have children of their own and others work with children within the school district; they know first-hand the joy that a child experiences on Christmas.
Between all of the contributors to the Angel Tree project, 800 gifts were distributed throughout the Monroe-Woodbury community. Results Driven was honored to have contributed, and looks forward to being involved next year. Thank you to Theresa who trusted us with a project that is so close to her heart, and thank you to all of our members who participated.
