Walmart Angel Tree a symbol of caring

Back in November when the Little Dreams, Big Dreams Angel Tree was set up in the lobby of Walmart in Simcoe no one was really sure how the community would respond.

The Angel Tree provided an opportunity for the community to give Christmas presents to children in need from the area. It has evolved into a symbol of commitment from the community to care for those in need. Pinned to the tree’s branches, dozens of tags listing the ages and genders of children were selected one by one.

“I never expected anything like this, it is remarkable,” stated Cathy, a Walmart employee who observed in-store purchases accumulate to a donation of over 200 toys. The gifts were collected by the Society and distributed to children and youth in need in Haldimand and Norfolk Counties.

The Society would like to extend our appreciation to the staff and management at Walmart for helping children in need this Christmas. The greatest thanks are owed to all of those in our communities who have demonstrated unparalleled compassion and generosity.

The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk is working hard to improve the lives and dreams of children and youth in our communities this Christmas and throughout the year.

Through a new partnership with Walmart we have created the Little Dreams, Big Dreams Angel Tree program which would provide Christmas gifts to children and youth in care as well as disadvantaged children and youth in our communities.

As a result of this program and others offered by the Society, you can belong to a community that cares about the well-being of children.

Helping is easy. Just visit the Walmart store in Simcoe, take a tag from the Angel Tree inside the front entrance and purchase a gift in the store.

Please contact us if you wish to help out children or families this Christmas or year round at 1-888-227-5437 or locally at 519-587-5437.
