For many people, the holiday season brings out the best in us: a giving, peaceful spirit; but, for children whose families face severe financial hardship this month, the Christmas season is not quite as happy.

That’s why every year Primerica Home Office employees chip in to fulfill the Christmas wishes of some of the area’s needy children. This year, employees adopted 102 children from the Salvation Army Angel Tree. Through this program, children submit a “need” list and a “wish” list. Wish lists usually contain toy and bicycle requests while need lists often include clothes, shoes, socks and coats. This year, the adopted Angels received every item on their need lists and the majority of the children received each item on their wish lists!

Cheryl Romage, HR Specialist, said, “The Angel Tree program provides more than holiday gifts. It gives kids the sense that someone cares. By adopting these 102 Angels, Primerica employees have, once again, demonstrated their generosity and caring spirit.”

Each year, Primerica employees go out of their way to bring some cheer to Gwinnett County, GA, children. It’s part of the company’s commitment to do what’s right for families … our clients and our community.

Primerica Home Office employees have generously adopted 100 Angels from the Salvation Army Angel Tree this year, committing to provide toys and clothing to children in need during the holiday season. The gifts will be delivered to children in the Gwinnett County area.

It’s holiday time, and for many families struggling through economic hardships, the season doesn’t hold the promise that it does for so many of us. Some parents need a helping hand in order to “make the season bright.” That’s why the Primerica Home Office has made the Salvation Army Angels program part of its regular calendar.

This year, the response was extraordinary. All 100 Angels were quickly adopted, and several extra items were donated! At least five bicycles and a crib were among the items contributed beyond the Angel list for whomever may need them.

The Home Office family has proven once again this year that, even during rough economic times, helping families is a Primerica way of life.
