In the spirit of the holidays, the 8020 Consulting team came together for the third season to sponsor post-9/11 wounded and disabled veterans and their families through Soldier’s Angels. As a group, the company supported 2 families and 8 children with gifts of their choosing, including toys and clothing as well as gift certificates totaling nearly $500 for use in purchasing a nice holiday meal.
Erin Youel, who coordinated the program, explains, “Soldier’s Angels is a really easy organization to work with as they are responsive, helpful and extremely good with matching the sponsoring company with families in need. It’s particularly nice that we have the opportunity to reach out directly to the families to find out exactly what they want and need.”
