CoServ Employees grant wishes for 29 angels

More than two dozen North Texas children and seniors will receive presents this Christmas thanks to the generosity of CoServ Employees and their families.

CoServ Employees donated nearly 250 gifts to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program this month, enough to provide Christmas gifts to 29 children and seniors.

The donations came from all departments, including the Executive Leadership Team, Customer Care, Community Engagement, Operations and Construction Management.

“During a time when it’s been another challenging year for so many families, it’s been deeply heartwarming to see the outpouring of support and care from our CoServ Employees and families to help other families in need,” said Jennifer Ebert, CoServ Community Relations Specialist. “It makes me so proud to be a part of CoServ where our dedication and passion are focused on serving our communities.”

Whitney Gohlke, CoServ’s Manager of Academic Initiatives, said she keeps a copy of the angel’s information so she can hang it on her tree and remember them on Christmas morning.

“I absolutely love shopping for others during the holidays but there is just something different about shopping for these kiddos that deserve an extra special message from their “Secret Santa” reminding them they are loved and are not forgotten during this special and difficult time of year for their family,” Whitney said.

Just like with the Mission of the Month Thanksgiving food drive last month, CoServ Employees stepped up to help others during the holidays.

“I truly believe that God blesses us so that we can be a blessing to others,” said Rossi Delane, Customer Care Specialist Supervisor. “We are so fortunate! We’re in a position to help the less fortunate, so that’s what we should do. Christmas is all about sharing, spreading love and joy, rejoicing and making people smile.”

CoServ Employees wrapped up a busy 2021 where we volunteered throughout the community and we’re excited to do more in 2022.  

“My sincerest thanks to everyone who has been able to participate in our volunteering and community outreach activities this year and a huge thanks to our leadership who make these programs possible,” Jennifer said.
