Cirro Energy Little Angel Tree
“We want to help thousands of at-risk children throughout Texas this Holiday season,” said Cindi Wakefield, spokesperson for Cirro Energy. “In addition to donating time and money this year, we hope to rally the community with the ‘Little Angels Tree’ campaign. By inviting the public to engage in Cirro Energy’s donation to three non-profits that focus on children, we hope to spark grassroots support for our local little angels.”
Cirro Energy is a strong supporter of the communities it serves. From volunteering time to donating money, Cirro Energy has helped nonprofits improve the lives of fellow Texans. This holiday season, it’s using a new, more social approach.
“Social media is the perfect way to engage people and promote awareness in charitable opportunities during the holidays,” said Wakefield. “From November 28 through December 18, anyone can post a photo of a favorite ornament for the ‘Little Angels Tree’ on our Facebook page. Each post will represent a $5 donation. There is no cost to the person who shares a favorite ornament photo.”
Community Partners of Dallas is dedicated to ensuring safety and restoring dignity and hope to abused and neglected children. It provided resources and support to more than 20,000 children last year.
In Houston, Kids’ Meals delivers nutritious meals to the doors of children in need, free of cost. Texas’ only meals-on-wheels service for children, the organization provides healthy home-delivered lunches to about 1,700 children daily under the age of five who live in poverty.
