The 2018 version of KidsPeace’s annual holiday “Angel Tree” gift campaign was the most successful to date, thanks to the generosity of its associates and donors in the Lehigh Valley community.
Angel Tree participants collect gifts for the children and young people who spend the holidays at KidsPeace Children’s Hospital and residential treatment facility at the Orchard Hills Campus in Orefield, PA. Tags with information and gift suggestions are created for each child, and KidsPeace associates, their families and individuals in the community select the tags and seek to fulfill the wishes.
The 2018 campaign resulted in the donation of nearly 1,000 gifts, along with a generous supply of hygiene products, gloves, hats, art supplies, wrapping paper and gift cards. Students from the Emerging Health Professionals program at Lehigh Career & Technical Institute spent two days on campus volunteering to wrap the gifts, and volunteers from BSI Corporate Benefits helped KidsPeace staff sort, organize and distribute the gifts to the children.
In addition to LCTI and BSI Corporate Benefits, KidsPeace thanks all the sponsors of the 2018 Angel Tree Campaign:
