A group of employees from the Nordstrom Rack in Plano spent Monday, October 19th at The Salvation Army in Plano, creating Angel Tree kits. This activity is part of their United Way community service contribution. Each year, Nordstrom stores across the nation spend one day giving back to their local community by volunteering.
The Plano Nordstrom Rack assembled 2,500 Angel Tree kits, including a bag to hold the gifts and an Angel Tree information sheet.
Nordstrom Rack Store Manager, Casey Aur, says she has personally participated in the Angel Tree program each year by adopting an angel, but she never knew what all is needed to make it successful. She found the volunteer opportunity inspiring.
“Nordstrom is known for exceptional customer service and this starts by having your employees work together as a team. That is what makes our store successful,” Aur said.
“It’s exciting that today, that a group of our staff can come together as a team and give back to The Salvation Army. It’s amazing how much volunteer work we will do today that will benefit Angel Tree.”
This year, The Salvation Army will assemble an estimate 60,000 angel tree kits. Salvation Army Angel Trees will be available, on November 13, in 10 malls: Collin Creek, Golden Triangle, Irving, NorthPark, Valley View, Hulen, Northeast, Ridgmar, Grapevine, and including Galleria this year!
Thank you Nordstrom Rack for giving back!
