Eaton's chairman for the project,
Gaynor Goodman, was excited when within two weeks from the start of
the drive not only were all the names were taken, but the gifts were
bought, returned to the trees and then delivered to the Jaycees.
"I am so proud of our employees for
coming together so willingly and generously to make sure that the
children have a wonderful Christmas," Goodman said.
After all of
the Angel Tree tags were distributed, employees decided to turn
their trees into "mitten trees" and are now also collecting gloves,
mittens, hats and scarves, which will be donated to the local
Community Action for distribution with coats.
