Adams Land and Cattle (ALCC) recently sponsored its 9th 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 over 260 gifts for 28 local families in need, including 90 children. As a new addition to the gifts, ALCC also gave beef roast bundles to all 28 families.
ALCC employees have been supporting local families enrolled in Sixpence through the Christmas Giving Tree Program for 9 years. The Sixpence program is an early childhood education program for children living in Custer County, and is coordinated through a partnership between Broken Bow Public Schools, Central Plains Center for Services and Central Nebraska Community Services.
“The gifts have a tremendous impact as the holiday season can be a difficult time of year for these families, as parents want to do what they can but may not have the means. The gifts of clothing, toys, and books are impactful and uplifting, not only during the holiday season but throughout the year,” said Nancy Ferguson.
Liz Babcock, Director of Organizational Development & Communication said, "This year, we wanted to ensure that local families had not only gifts under the Christmas tree, but food on their dinner tables as well. We hope that the gifts of the beef roasts and ingredients will help with each of the family's Christmas dinners."
"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," Babcock added.
