E4H Cares | Holiday Warmth and Gift Giving

E4H Cares recognizes that the holidays can sometimes be a difficult time and hopes to provide assistance to those in need. Our offices selected different causes to contribute gifts, food, and time to, as described below. We would like to extend our wishes for a bright and healthy 2019!

Boston, MA: The Boston office sponsored 20 individuals – 7 women and 13 children. Each individual asked for specific items such as clothing, blankets, or toys. We were happy to provide all requests, in addition to more, totaling 40 gifts. Household items such as laundry baskets, soap, and shampoo were also donated to the Alternative House.

Portland, ME: The Portland office supported the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital (BBCH), where $140 worth of toys helped stock the Snowflake Station. At the Snowflake Station parents of the BBCH patients were able to pick out gifts for their children. Some of the donations will also provide therapeutic play activities in the Child Life Department.

Nashville, TN: The Tennessee office prepared 20 lunches for The Oasis Center volunteers who are working at the crisis center.

Dallas and Ft. Worth, TX: See our recent blog post regarding The Salvation Army Angel Tree.

Burlington, VT: The Vermont office donated $400 worth of toys and gifts to the Ronald McDonald House, proud to support the children and families who are facing childhood illness.

Washington DC: The DC office delivered $450 worth of gift cards to Fort Belvoir for “Operation Sugar Plum”, a program which assists eligible families assigned to Fort Belvoir by providing gift and food cards during the holiday season.

E4HCares Participates in the DFW Angel Tree

This week the Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX offices raised a grand total of $5,146! We had a total of 20 Angels, and several bags of toys and clothes for the less fortunate.

The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is designed to raise gifts to assist families who are in crisis as a result of difficult circumstances and who otherwise wouldn’t have the resources to celebrate Christmas. Angel Tree gives donors the opportunity to make a difference in the life of an underprivileged child, teen or senior citizen. By adopting an angel, you can bring a smile to someone’s face this Christmas.

We have a total of 20 adopt-an-angel(s). Standard angels consist of wants and needs and are the more traditional angels. They include specific information about a child including clothing sizes, toy preferences, etc. We also provide for Forgotten angels, these are more generic and allow their team to fulfill angels who may have been picked up but not returned. Any additional money or items from the Standard adopt-an-angel will be given to the forgotten angels.

 

“I have headed the program the last 3 years, because I was an “Angel” for several years as a child. Not only did my family rely on these generous donations every year, but I have vivid memories of opening up my gifts and thinking it was a Christmas miracle! No child should be left out on the joys of Christmas morning. And the Angel Tree program (and many others) can help these children feel loved and valued- unlocking their potential for a brighter future.” – Amanda Robinson
