AGL Participates in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Event

SalvationArmyAngelTree2013The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Event is a long-standing tradition that offers individuals & families the opportunity to “adopt” (in spirit) a child for Christmas.  This opportunity gives children the chance to experience a Christmas joy that they would otherwise not encounter.  Families and Corporations reach out to sign up with their local Salvation Army to provide children with age appropriate gifts.  American Global Logistics has developed a corporate partnership with the Salvation Army.  This year AGL supported the event with both monetary means and man-power for shopping.  Our children are the future of this country and local economies, and AGL is proud to support the smiles of our future.
