A M King’s angel tree tradition is a win-win for givers and receivers

December 24, 2019

Carolinas-based A M King, an integrated design-build firm with an office in Greenville, helped the Salvation Army in Greenville provide gifts for thousands of children who may not otherwise receive anything for Christmas. Each year for the past seven years A M King has adopted children registered with the Angel Tree program, assisting with the collective effort to help those families who have the most need in our community.

A M King employees at both the Greenville office and the company’s Charlotte headquarters began shopping for their Angels shortly after Thanksgiving, coordinated gift package assembly for each individual Angel and loaded clothes, toys and bikes onto the Salvation Army truck for delivery. The effort took a little muscle and a lot of heart and gave our employees something wonderful in return.

A M King has been a longtime supporter of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, and now provides each employee with $150 each year to spend on his or her own Angel. A M King then adopts an additional 100 Angels. This year the firm ensured that nearly 150 children will receive Christmas toys and winter clothing.

Hundreds of volunteers are giving their time and resources generously this holiday season, including thousands of people who adopted Angels, purchased gifts, donated toys and are still ringing the bell at the iconic Red Kettle. A M King is proud to be a part of the effort that nets so much for many people during the holidays and makes their lives just a little bit easier.

Last year, an estimated 100,000 children in North and South Carolina experienced joy on Christmas morning through The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.
