Coordinated by Monroe County Children and Youth, the Inn's employees sponsored children during the holiday season by selecting their name from Shawnee's Angel Tree.
This year will mark Shawnee's fourth year participating in the Angel Tree program. This year, 70 Children will have a brighter holiday because of Shawnee's involvement.
Angel Tree is a Monroe County Children and Youth program that welcomes the participation of local businesses during the holiday season. Each company that takes part in the program pledge to sponsor a specific number of children, and in turn, employees can take it upon themselves to support a child and purchase him or her a gift. The children involved in the Angel Tree program make modest lists for Santa Claus with the hopes of having their wishes fulfilled.
