Since 2009, TriMark Digital has “adopted” hundreds of angels through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. This program helps thousands of local children each year experience the delight of opening gifts during the holidays. Sponsors donate new clothes and toys for each angel to bring a little holiday cheer to those Wake County families who need it most.
TriMark embraced the call to give back to those in need, and we are excited to announce that 2019 was our biggest donation year yet! On November 22nd, we gathered at Target in our tackiest holiday sweaters for our 12th annual Angel Tree shopping spree to bring joy to 153 children in the Triangle area. In total, we donated nearly $4,000 in gifts of new clothing and toys.
As part of the tradition, we brought our competitive spirit while shopping. Once divided into 7 teams, each group was challenged to spend as close to $25 per child without going over. The catch: no calculators were allowed to help tally the total amount spent on their collective children. The winning team spent $492.85 on 20 angels—just a few dollars shy of their $500 limit.
This special event is one of our favorite days all year. Watch our video below to share in the fun and laughter we had as we brought joy to many families in our community. To learn more about this program, learn how you can adopt an angel.
