Angels for Ashton Giving Trees are a great way to provide a small gesture of kindness by purchasing gifts for women to give their children or for college students in need, lifting the stress of the holiday season and motivating them to continue working towards their goals.
For the past 5 years, the Ashton Hope Keegan Foundation has assisted Partnering Ambassadors for Life and Service (PALS) with their Giving Tree program during the holiday season. PALS is the organization where Ashton spent her time mentoring and tutoring women who are working to improve their future through computer education, GED certification, job placement and skills application training. Along with Athens PALS, we are excited to partner with Lydia’s Place and Innovative Healthcare Institute this year for our Angels for Ashton Giving Trees! In addition to our physical tree located at Orangetheory Fitness, we will also have a virtual giving tree. Visit Orangetheory Fitness at 196 Alps Road, Athens, GA or Click Here for our virtual giving tree to select, purchase and donate gifts that will support the Athens Community.
Once a gift is purchased, TAGGED and UPWRAPPED gifts can be dropped off or mailed to 1230 Scotland Bend, Watkinsville, GA 30677 or dropped off at either Athens, Georgia Orangetheory Fitness locations. Thank you for your generosity and helping make someone’s Christmas wishes come true!
2020 Angel Tree
We did not let the pandemic stop Christmas from coming. We were able to bring Christmas to families and children, ages ranging from infant to eighteen, in need. A big thanks to Orange Theory in Athens, GA for supporting Ashton Hope Keegan Foundation Angel/Giving trees. This was our 5th year since we started this effort. It filled our hearts with joy to know we helped close to 100 children of the women in the PALS program to have a wonderful Christmas.
