Angels in Our Midst (33rd Communities Caring at Christmas Campaign)

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 01:43 PM CDT
Sandy Sansing, Communities Caring at Christmas Corporate Sponsor: "On behalf of our family and the Sandy Sansing Dealerships, we're proud to present you with this check for $15,000 to start shopping for the children."
With that, the 33rd Communities Caring at Christmas campaign was launched.  Following Sandy's lead, the community has stepped forward to share the joy of the season.

The elves were busy in the workshop, actually the corporate offices of Gulf Power Company, building bicycles; many going to children who've never owned one.

Every year, they've got a knack for picking the coldest, windiest and wettest day, but I'm Local 2460 at Armstrong World Industries is out there religiously collecting donations at the entrance to the plant.
 The Angels at Ascend Performance Materials were some busy shoppers as they tried to fulfill the wishes for 150 children on the Communities Caring list.

Our radio partners were on board in full force.  Cat Country and News Radio 1620, WXBM and Soft Rock 94.1.
A very special lady, Jennifer Davis, purchased clothing for hundreds of little ones in honor of her own children.

Back at the workshop, those Gulf Power elves were making sure the holiday was bright, they went shopping for just the right gifts.

Mark Crosswhite, President, CEO Gulf Power Company;  

The corporate giving was from the heart  The J. H. Baroco Foundation was extremely generous donations came from Navy Federal Credit Union, Fisher Brown Insurance, Cornerstone Facilities Engineering, our tried and true friend, Historian John Appleyard and the employees of the Appleyard Agency.

Premier Island management's 1st 5K Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day was a big success and we give thanks for their gift to Communities Caring.
And we thank the audience at the holiday Evenings in Olde Seville, our great friends at Walmart on Mobile Highway, the management of Uncle Bob's Storage, the Frenkels at Pensacola Interstate Fairgrounds and our littlest angels, Prosser and Katie-John Crow.
To all who gave from your hearts to bless thousands of children with the joy of Christmas, we thank you.
Angels in our Midst is brought to you by Sacred Heart Children's Hospital.
