NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS:
 

CSM Giving Back - Salvation Army Angel Tree and Volunteering: The Salvation Army headquarters here in Leesburg was overjoyed to hear that we will be helping them out again this year, as we have been a strong supporting force in the past couple of years. The need is great as we all begin to come out of the effects of COVID-19. See below for volunteer and adopt an angel opportunities. They’ve made it easy to get involved with lots of online tools to help us!

• Angel Online Adoption: For those who would like to adopt an angel online, click below. These angels have been selected for CSM and we’re hoping to adopt out all 75!! Everything remains online this year, but this is exactly the same as if you were taking an Angel off one of the CSM trees. The online platform will track just like we would normally do, providing a sign out process in case anyone misplaces an Angel: we can easily look it up and give you the info you need.

Angels should be returned to CSM by Wednesday, December 8, 2021. You may drop them off in the wait room of any unit. The truck will come from SA to pick everything up on Friday 12/10/21. We’ll use those 2 days in between to make sure everything is labeled and ready to roll. If you need more time, please let us know. We can accommodate.
