Residents continue to support Angel Wishes Project

Mary Beth Fisher

For the ninth year, residents immersed themselves in the Salvation Army Angel Wishes project. The Christmas Angels are requests from deserving and less fortunate children in Pinal County with an emphasis on children in Casa Grande, Arizona City and Eloy.

The 250 wishes were on the trees at RR Sport Center for three weeks and all requests were filled. On December 8 the unwrapped gifts were loaded into a caravan of four pickup trucks and six SUVs which delivered the gifts to the Salvation Army, who expressed such genuine thank yous as Robson Ranch is their biggest donor to the Angel Wish program.

In addition, RR residents volunteered to ring the kettle bell at Sam’s Club in Casa Grande on two Saturdays. A great time was held by all these kind-hearted spirits. Their collections were in the top five percent of kettle collections in Casa Grande. A giant thank you to these volunteers.
