Keeping with tradition, the LifeStyle team once again pooled funds and resources to help a local family in need. This holiday season, LifeStyle Homes partnered up with the Salvation Army of Melbourne for our annual “Adopt-A-Family” program.
Sharon Alleva of the Salvation Army of Melbourne assisted LifeStyle in finding the perfect family in our community needing a hand up this holiday season. She paired LifeStyle with a local grandmother who is on disability and raising her three grandchildren, ages 11, 9, and 3. The grandmother was struggling to make ends meet and fulfill the kids’ Christmas lists.
Members of the LifeStyle team each gave generously to collectively raise over $1,300. Using these funds, all the items on the family’s wish lists were purchased with enough remaining to also provide a basket filled with needed household items, as well as a holiday meal from Honey Baked Ham. The gifts, household items, and meal were delivered to the Salvation Army team, who, in turn, delivered to the family.
Nothing feels better than paying it forward, especially during the holidays. We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. Here’s to a wonderful 2019!
