United Way Spreads Holiday Cheer with American Christmas Partnership

United Way of Westchester and Putnam is proud to announce its heartwarming partnership with American Christmas to bring joy and festive spirit to 15 deserving Westchester families during the holiday season. In a display of collective generosity, these families, who have faced various challenges throughout the year, will receive beautifully decorated and pre-lit artificial Christmas trees to brighten their homes courtesy of American Christmas.

The selected families were nominated by local nonprofit organizations and faith-based groups in Westchester, ensuring that those who could benefit the most from this initiative are given the opportunity to experience the magic of the season.

As part of this heartwarming endeavor, the families will visit American Christmas’s storefront in November and have the opportunity to decorate their new Christmas trees with an array of ornaments. This hands-on experience not only fosters a sense of ownership but also creates cherished memories for the families to treasure.

American Christmas, a renowned leader in holiday decorating services, is contributing pre-lit trees and a wide selection of ornaments to make this festive dream come true. Their commitment to spreading holiday cheer aligns seamlessly with United Way’s mission of improving lives and creating a brighter future for the communities it serves.

“We are thrilled and immensely grateful to partner with American Christmas once again on this uplifting holiday project,” said Melissa Preudhomme, program coordinator for United Way of Westchester and Putnam. “The holiday season is a time for giving, and together with American Christmas, we are making a tangible difference in the lives of these families, bringing warmth and joy when it is needed most.”

This heartwarming initiative exemplifies the power of collaboration and community support, showcasing how organizations and businesses can come together to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those facing adversity.
