The Christmas tree in Arnerich Massena’s office had presents pouring out around it, but just for a short time; the multitude of packages was delivered to 18 families with 39 children in the Irvington neighborhood. This year’s Giving Tree brought necessities and a little joy to children who needed it this year. The winter weather postponed delivery temporarily, but the gifts have now made their way to their designated recipients.
Arnerich Massena employees who participated in the Giving Tree shopped for some of the basics the kids needed, like shoes, clothes, and blankets. But shoppers threw in some toys as well, even including two bicycles under the tree! In addition, Arnerich Massena’s “Socktober” sock and underwear drive collected enough items for all of the Giving Tree families. We all feel very lucky this holiday season, and glad to have the opportunity to contribute to those less fortunate.
Thank you to all Giving Tree donors; check out photos below!
