Women’s socks, toiletries, a toy truck, Kid’s Skechers, these are the gifts you’ll find listed on the Christmas wish list of children from the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, and adults from the Adult Protective Services Holiday Project in St. Petersburg. The simple things.
During a time of year when most people spend time at home with their families with stockings all hung and presents under the tree, there are those without a home or family to celebrate the holidays. To help make the season brighter Butler has taken on the task of collecting gifts for 41 disabled seniors and 30 children in need.
This year, the staff and lawyers at the firm provided those simple gifts and made them special by wrapping them in cheerful holiday paper, personalizing each one with the names of all the men, women and children on their list. Thoughtful gestures letting them know they are valued, and that their community cares.
