ATGF Gives Local Families the Christmas They Otherwise Couldn’t Afford This Year

posted Dec 19, 2018, 12:27 PM by Kim Whitlock

One of the real joys of the Holiday Season is the opportunity to say thank you and wish you the very best for the New Year.  We are incredibly grateful to all of our agents who helped make 2018 one of our best years to date.  Instead of seasonal cards or boxes of chocolates, this year ATGF has adopted local families that need a little extra help making this Christmas special. Indeed, today the office is full of the sound of presents being wrapped by our team.

 

ATGF’s first ever Adopt-a-Family initiative is a by-product of a fundraising event the company conducted last summer for HomeAid Colorado. HomeAid connected ATGF with its partner organization Foster Source, “where we found two beautiful families who could use a little help this year,” says Devin Storms, Agency Manager at ATGF, Inc.

 

Foster Source supports foster parents to begin the healing process in vulnerable children. Most of their client­–foster parents have three or more children. Some take in many more.


How many? One of the two ATGF is supporting has ten children! They range in ages from 1 to 20. The other family has six, ages 2 to 18. 

 

ATGF wanted to make a real difference one on one with these kids, so we asked some questions to learn more about them. We had so much fun shopping for them, but nothing compares to the joy and the smiles we saw when we delivered those presents to the families. “ATGF is pleased to have helped bring smiles to these beautiful families’ faces,” says Mrs. Storms.  In fact, several ATGF employees contributed personal funds to make sure that everyone received something really special.

 

It really is better to give than to receive.

 

“There’s so much need right here in our own community,” says Storms. “And it feels so good to give that we encourage our partners, clients and team members to join the Adopt-a-Family initiative too.”  We could not do this without your business throughout the year
