Angel Tree 2017

EDG’s Metairie Community Service Team has adopted a family for Christmas!

The Angel Tree is located in the 7th Floor Lobby near the receptionist’s desk.

Please take one (or more!) ornaments off the tree and purchase the requested item!

For Christmas 2017, we have adopted a family of four (4) through Catholic Charities of New Orleans’ Holiday Gift Drive.  The family includes a mother, a father (Age 28), and two sons (Ages 4 and 5).  The father suffered a traumatic brain injury, and the family is on a fixed income.  We will be collecting food items to make a food basket, clothing for the children, and gifts for the family.

The Angel Tree is located in the 7th floor Lobby along with the information we received about the family.  Each ornament on the tree has an item needed for the family.  Please take one (or more!) ornament off the tree and purchase the requested item.  All items should be new and unwrapped.  Please return all purchased items along with the associated ornament to Laura Bassil or Cathlynn Morton.

Gifts will be accepted beginning now through December 13th.

Monetary donations will also be accepted and will be spent toward the purchase of additional gifts or household items.
