This Christmas was very jolly this year thanks to the generous donations from those in our community. One such donor team was organized by Angie Shafer, Office Coordinator of Loyalty & Strategic Marketing. Angie helped the VIP Services and Player’s Club team members adopt a local family in need this year through our agency. This special gifting was made even more magical by arranging for the team to personally-deliver all of the presents amidst the covid-19 pandemic.
The team showed up in festive attire with their vehicles packed to the brim with presents. Although everyone was adorned with facemasks to comply with CDC guidelines, you could tell they were smiling ear to ear as they greeted the family and dropped off the gifts.
The mother’s eyes were filled with tears, and the children’s eyes were gleaming with excitement to see the many presents brought for them. Among the toys were even bikes and helmets galore that were gifted for the whole family to enjoy!
We are so overjoyed and blessed to have been able to help connect donors to those in need especially during this arduous year. Thank you again to the Mohegan Sun Marketing Department!
