Christmas Angels waiting to be picked this weekend | THE DAILY HERALD

Two large Christmas trees will be filled with hundreds of little angels.

PHILIPSBURG–Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, K1 Britannia Foundation is spreading the tradition of giving throughout the island via the Christmas Angel Program. Two large Christmas trees will be filled with hundreds of little angels.

  K1 Britannia Foundation initiated the Christmas Angels Program eight years ago with the intention to support vulnerable groups and local organisations during this time of the year. The programme has seen the local community come out year after year to make Christmas special and memorable for a child, teenager, adult or elderly person.

  The angels on the Christmas trees were all hand-made with love by the programme’s participants. The angels represent a foster child or youth, a Sister Basilia Center or District Nursing client of White and Yellow Cross Care Foundation, a Mental Health Foundation client, a Ujima member, a child at the transitional shelter or Player Development SXM, or other underprivileged children who need some extra love this Christmas.

  K1 Britannia Foundation and its volunteers will be at the Government Administration Building on Pond Island from Friday to Monday, December 3-6, from 9:00am to 6:00pm. You can pass by, choose a special angel, buy a gift for the person it represents, and in return you get to keep the little angel as a gift from that person – a perfect ornament to treasure!

  Thousands of gifts have been given to the most vulnerable of our community over the past eight years and individuals, families, and companies have been supportive and instrumental in the programme’s success thus far. For recipients of the gifts each holiday season, it is meaningful and impactful that someone is thinking of them.

  K1 Britannia Foundation believes that it is in giving that we receive. Join the programme this Christmas and feel the impact one single act can have on the most vulnerable in our community.
