[DEC. 13, 2003]  The employees at Eaton Electrical (Cutler-Hammer) have been busy seasoning the spirit of the holidays. Workers sponsored 207 names from the Jaycees' Angel Tree program in Lincoln. This was over one-third of the available names.

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.
