Adams Land and Cattle (ALCC) recently sponsored its 13th annual Giving Tree Program, where employees fulfill holiday wish lists by donating Christmas gifts to children and families enrolled in the local Sixpence program. Their efforts resulted in 320 gifts for 28 local families in need, including 72 children. ALCC also gave beef roast bundles to all 28 families.
To help support the Giving Tree program, ALCC also sold “shirts for a cause”. All proceeds from the “Give Thanks, Eat Beef” shirts went directly to purchasing additional gifts for the local families. Liz Babcock, Director of Communications for Adams said, “It was incredible to see the support from people all over the country who purchased the shirts and wanted to help bring joy to Custer County children this Christmas.”
Babcock added, “It has been a tremendous honor for Adams Land and Cattle to have the opportunity to help families in our community and bring a smile to a child’s face during this special time of year. We’d like to thank all of the employees and their families who have helped make this possible again through their extraordinary generosity. We hope that the gifts of the beef roasts and ingredients will help with each of the family’s Christmas celebrations.”
ALCC employees have been supporting local families enrolled in Sixpence through the Christmas Giving Tree Program for 13 years.
