Vermont Business Magazine The holiday season shined brightly for hundreds of local children as the generous community made their Christmas wishes come true. The Salvation Army teamed up with the Star 92.9 radio group, Shearer Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac, and Lenny's Shoe & Apparel for the annual Christmas is for Kids holiday gift drive. Through the month of December, the radio group shared the Christmas wish lists of local children live on the airwaves. The community reacted by fulfilling Angel Tag wish lists and dropping gift donations off at Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel.

“I am in awe at the number of gifts that came through our doors,” said Amanda Cashin, Marketing Director at Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel. “The Salvation Army came to our four stores multiple times a week and filled their box trucks with the donated presents. It feels wonderful to be a part of this massive holiday donation effort that made the holidays a happy one for hundreds of kids this Christmas.”

This was the 5th year of the Christmas is for Kids program. This year, over 1,000 children received Christmas gifts through the Angel Tag program in Chittenden, Washington and Franklin counties in Vermont and Clinton County New York.

“We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from our listeners and the community in helping make this year’s Christmas is for Kids campaign the most successful in the history of our Angel Tag sponsorship with the Salvation Army, said JoAnn Cyr, General Sales Manager, Vox AM/FM Radio Group. “The new partnership this year with Lenny’s Shoe and Apparel made it much easier for gift drop-offs and directly contributed to a much higher turnout for Angel Tag participation this year. We couldn’t be happier!”
