Gifts, food and cash collected in Abbotsford
The Angel Tree program has now begun at all Envision Financial locations, including the three branches in Abbotsford.
The sites display a decorated Christmas tree with angel ornaments, each representing a child, youth or senior in the community.
Members of the public are encouraged to take an angel from the tree and return it with a new, unwrapped gift to any participating location by Dec. 8.
All gifts and/or cash donations in Abbotsford are delivered to the Salvation Army and the Abbotsford Christmas Bureau.
People also have the option of selecting a tin can ornament from the tree, and returning it with a non-perishable food item or cash donation.
This year, Envision has created a video about the Angel Tree program which can be viewed at www.youtube.com/envisionfinancial.
For every view, Envision will donate $1 to the Angel Tree program (up to $10,000), which will then be distributed to the program’s community partners.
