Christmas Gifts For Children
Since 2001, ACEA has sponsored the children of the Mainsprings School during the Christmas season. In order to do this, we rely on the generosity of our members and member companies for support.
Without your assistance, we wouldn’t have been able to serve the children and staff at The Mainsprings School. This year the school had 100 children who needed sponsors and our ACEA members were more than happy to step up to the task!
We’d like to share this note from the school’s Executive Director, Jason Gidele:
“I just want to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone at ACEA for being at the heart of this effort to take care of at-risk children and their families.
We have a lot of special days at Mainspring, but yesterday was special (with emphasis). The smiles from these children to seeing Frank (aka Santa) walk in was priceless! This was a happy place from morning to night because of all that you did. When parents came to pick up the kids, the only topic of conversation was Santa and the wonderful gifts!
And as you well know, Christmas isn’t always a joyous time for some of our children. So, for the ACEA membership to take time to give these kids a day to celebrate is really special. Our children have such appreciation for the gifts and thoughtfulness, and it makes this time of year so much better.
Mainspring is a community effort and ACEA is at the core of this community. Please give my personal thanks to everyone at ACEA for always being there for our at-risk children and families, as well as our teachers and this entire school.”
