“Before I began working at Eaton Hydraulics, there were times [that] it was a challenge to pay for all of the supplies and uniforms my daughter needed at school,” Drinnon said. “The Angel Tree Program of The Salvation Army helps the kids, but it also helps the parents.”
Eaton Hydraulics has taken its season for sharing and caring to the Angel Tree program which provides Christmas assistance for families in need and their children, as well as senior citizens, who would not otherwise receive gifts, including necessities such as food and warm clothing in order to enjoy a family Christmas. This year’s strong participation from Eaton Hydraulics employees will enable 33 local children to have gifts this Christmas.
According to Jennifer No, human resources assistant for Eaton, a part of the company’s core values is to support the community in which it is located.
“Eaton has a long history of encouraging community involvement, believing that doing so creates healthy, sustainable communities and business facilities,” No said. “The ways in which we do this take many different forms with the ultimate goal of bringing tangible and sustainable benefits to the places we live and work in.”
Monetary donations to support Angel Tree can be dropped off at any of The Salvation Army red kettle locations. Or, they can be mailed to 437 Inman St., Cleveland TN. For more information, call 308-3467
