$30,000 raised for Angel Tree program
Over 350 needy children will receive gifts this Christmas thanks to a golf tournament sponsored by Northwest Plumbing and Pulte Homes. The tournament’s $30,000 in proceeds will purchase toys to benefit The Salvation Army’s annual Angel Tree program that serves low-income families.
Area Commander for The Salvation Army in Northeast Florida Major Jim Arrowood said Pulte Homes employees will handle the purchase of gifts for the children.
“The Pick-An-Angel Foundation has contributed to the success of our Angel Tree program since 2004,” he said. “We are blessed to have Northwest Plumbing and Pulte Homes support The Salvation Army and Angel Tree. Because of their effort, over 350 children in Jacksonville will have toys and food for the holidays.”
The Pick-An-Angel Foundation was established by Pulte Homes of Jacksonville to provide a venue for its golf tournament participants to give back to the community.
Since 2004, the Pick-An-Angel Foundation has provided nearly $130,000 worth of Christmas presents for The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.
