Houston Angels is an organization that provides children, youth, and their families in the foster care community consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship. Through their programs they meet the real needs of children and their entire families, foster healthy relationships, and mentor young people to be prepared for independent living and to reach their fullest potential.
One of their Holiday Sponsor events is a Holiday Giving Tree. Eximo is a giving community that cares deeply about family, whether that’s the family you have at home, or the FitFam you sweat with every week. The Holiday Giving Tree is a great way to show some love to kids who might otherwise miss out on having a present under the tree with their name on it.
How does it work? Read on!
There is a “tree” set up in the gym. Houston Angels provided us tags. Each tag represents a gift for one child. The tag will have the child’s wished-for item printed on it. You choose a tag, purchase the item, and then bring it back to the gym by November 30th. Simple!
Oh… I almost forgot! Leave the gift unwrapped!
Houston Angels will pick up the unwrapped gifts on Thursday December 1st.
You are invited to join Houston Angels for Wrapping Hour. This is their gift wrapping party where all the gifts are wrapped, holiday cards are created, and family baskets are organized. They will have holiday-themed snacks and beverages.
Wrapping Hour will be Sunday December 4th from 4pm-7pm at Retrospect Motorworks 4245 Richmond Ave. Suite 600 Houston, TX 77027.
What to bring: Wrapping paper, gift bags of all sizes, and a fun holiday spirit! Ugly Christmas sweaters are encouraged!
*If you would like to carpool to the wrapping hour, we will meet at the gym at 3pm.
None of these gifts are meant to break the bank, and you can make a child’s Christmas happier! You choose your price based on the tag selected.
