PHILIPSBURG:--- K1 Britannia Foundation initiated the Christmas Angels Program in 2014 with the intention to support vulnerable groups and local organizations during the holiday season. Since then, the program has seen the local community come out year after year to make Christmas special and memorable for a child, teenager, adult, or elderly.
Over 400 handmade Christmas Angels will be hung up on two large Christmas trees at the Government Administration Building in Philipsburg, starting this Thursday, December 1st to Monday, December 5th, 2022. The K1 Britannia Team will be on location between 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Each angel was handmade with love by the program’s recipients. The angels represent foster children, UJIMA members, children at Player Development and the Transitional Shelter, clients of Sr. Basilia Center, District Nursing and Mental Health Foundation, Excellence Learning Academy students, Freegan Food Foundation Food Program Clients (children), Down Syndrome Foundation members and other vulnerable children who need some extra love this Christmas.
The community is encouraged to pass by, choose a special angel, buy a gift for the person who made it and when you return by latest Monday, December 5th at 6:00 pm with the gift, in return, you will get to keep the little angel as a gift from that person – a perfect ornament to treasure!
Individuals, families, friends, colleagues, social and sports clubs, and companies showing support by coming out, picking angels, and purchasing one or more gifts is needed and instrumental in making the program a success and the holiday season special for over 400 persons. For recipients of the gifts each holiday season, it’s meaningful and impactful that individual thought and care were put into showing them that yes, they do matter and are valued.
The K1 Britannia Foundation believes that it is in giving that we receive. Join the program this Christmas and feel the impact one single act can have on the most vulnerable in our community.
