NEO A&M College says thank you to the Miami community

Miami, Okla. – Friday, Jan. 3, 2013 – Officials at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) want to say thank you to the Community of Miami in supporting the Angel Tree program. Without their generosity, 361 families would not have had gifts under the tree.

Approximately 1,000 children could have experienced a Christmas without the magic of Santa. They could have awoken Christmas morning and found very little- if anything- awaiting them under the tree.

Some of the corporate sponsors included:
Miami Noon Lions Club
IAFF Local 1969 Fire Dept.
Walmart (store #28)
Buffalo Run Casino
Boys and Girls Club
Stables Casino
KOAM-TV Toy Box
Miami Area Chamber of Commerce, and all of its members
Integris Baptist Regional Health Center
Ottawa County United Way
All Saints Episcopal Church
NEO President’s Partners

Thanks to those businesses and many individual volunteers, local children who leapt out of bed on Christmas morning were greeted with packages from the Angel Tree program. The Miami community provided gifts for almost 1,000 children whose parents were in need of financial assistance during the 2013 holiday season.

“The Angel Tree Program had an increase in need this holiday season,” said Scott Donaldson, director of recruitment at NEO. “I would like to personally thank everyone who helped us make it, because in the end it isn’t about how many toys we bought, but about how many happy children we were able to create.”

The Student Recruitment Office at NEO encourages anyone involved or interested in an Angel Tree/Christmas Gifts Program for Ottawa County to attend the first of several organizational meetings on Thursday, Jan. 16th at 1 p.m. in the Regents Room in the Student Union on the campus of NEO A&M College. At this time, Scott Donaldson, director of recruitment at NEO, will address the future of Angel Tree program and how to make this program better.
