When more than 100 local Bank of America managers wanted to do something for Star of Hope clients during Christmas, they came up with a unique idea. Instead of volunteering at one of our facilities, they turned the second floor of the Greenspoint branch into another Star of Hope Christmas Workshop.
Bank of America ordered all of the gifts and wrapping supplies from the WalMart at South Post Oak and Loop 610. And thanks our friends at WalMart, Bank of America was able to stretch their $7,500 investment and buy even more gifts than anticipated!
Princess tea sets, puzzles, games, watches, bath & shower sets, basketballs and MP3 players were just some of the gifts selected for Transitional Living Center clients. Once the gifts reached Santa’s Greenspoint outpost, they were sorted, wrapped and grouped together with joy. One team even made greeting cards filled with notes of encouragement and warm Christmas wishes for each TLC family!
At the end of the day, all of Santa’s helpers, dressed in their red and white Bank of America t-shirts and Santa hats, waved goodbye. The Star of Hope truck, loaded down with many brightly colored packages, was on its way to make a very special delivery!
