“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” -Calvin Coolidge
Miles for Merry Miracles (M4MM) is a youth-led and youth-driven organization that partners with the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program and many other local organizations to provide gifts and food for Angel Tree children during the holiday season. After starting as an Eagle Scout project in 2008, M4MM has assisted in sponsoring over 2,000 Angels.
Being able to bless these young kids is a true gift! Knowing that we can help in what seems a small way to us, means something so much bigger for them. To be able to serve in someone’s life that may not be able to receive the everyday things they need, can make a heart so full.
The mission of Miles of Merry Miracles is to improve and enhance the communities through youth development and wellness initiatives. This is their 14th year of helping out our community! The Elderberry Co. is very honored and excited to be a part of this wonderful organization this holiday season.
We have an Angel Tree right here in our shop, located downtown New Albany Indiana.
We will have plenty of little angels on the tree. So to our locals, feel free to stop in starting on Friday, November 12th to get yours. All of the information will be provided on each angel which represents one child. This specific organization is asking for clothes and accessories only this season. The local Wal-mart has kindly set a specific day for anyone to come in and do their shopping for their child.
That date is set for November 20th, which is Global Family Volunteer Day!
The time to shop that day is 9am-6pm.
If you are not local to us, feel free to check out any Wal-mart or Sam’s Club near you. They have an angel tree every year. You can also shop online for an angel https://www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/walmart-angel-tree/ Or donate directly to https://give-do.salvationarmy.org/give/372005/#!/donation/checkout
How are you and your family spreading joy this Holiday season? We would love to hear in the comments.
