Board of Stewards Provides Gifts for 150 Children

12.10.2012

High Point University Angel TreeHIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 10, 2012 – The High Point University Board of Stewards is spreading joy this holiday season by bringing Christmas gifts and clothing to 150 needy through the High Point Salvation Army Angel Tree program.

Thanks to offerings provided by students and members of the HPU community during weekly chapel services, the Board of Stewards had more than $10,000 to spend to make this Christmas season a special time for these children.

“It is amazing to know that the kids in the High Point area will get to open presents on Christmas morning,” says Michelle Burns, Board of Stewards member. “I feel so lucky to be a part of a group that continuously gives back locally. Shopping for these kids was a wonderful experience, and it reminds me of the true meaning of Christmas.”

The Hayworth Board of Stewards has donated offerings collected during Wednesday evening services in the Charles E. Hayworth Sr. Memorial Chapel to the Salvation Army Angel Tree program since 1996.

“Being able to help children during the holiday season is truly rewarding,” says Lexi Valentinas, Board of Stewards member.
