WESTBROOK, Maine (December 17, 2021) The Salvation Army holds an “Adopt-A-Family” program each year to provide support and holiday gifts for those in need. The program is designed to assist families who need a helping hand during the holiday season. Through donations from local organizations, businesses, and families, it provides assistance to those experiencing unexpected hardships. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected and taken a toll on many families, so the Salvation Army’s program is greatly appreciated by those whom it supports, bringing them joy during a difficult time.
Artel employees had the opportunity to select from a pool of recipients and purchased gifts such as reading material for a five year old boy, toys for a three year old girl, gift certificates for seniors, etc. A variety of gifts were collected at the company headquarters and delivered to the Salvation Army well in advance of the holidays so that they could be delivered in time. It was a welcome opportunity that allowed “Artelians” to help bring some holiday cheer to our neighbors.
