Highway Equipment & Supply Co. wrapped up its second-annual Giving Tree holiday program by delivering gifts the first two weeks of December to local Salvation Armies.

The Giving Tree program provides local needy children with holiday gifts in coordination with area Salvation Armies. Businesses sponsor Giving Trees on which they place gift tags and encourage staff and visitors to pick a tag representing a child's wish list, shop for that child, and place unwrapped gifts under the tree.


Thanks to the dedication and collaboration of Highway's staff, the company fulfilled a total of 27 tags across the four branches:

  • Harrisburg - 10 tags

  • Drums - 9 tags

  • Brownstown - 5 tags

  • Lock Haven - 3 tags

Inspired by the classic Shel Silverstein book, The Giving Tree, the Salvation Army Giving Tree program focuses on the spirit of giving and service to others during the holiday season.

The Giving Tree program makes holiday magic happen for children who otherwise would go without," said Highway's HR, Marketing, & Communications Manager. "And, as corny as this sounds, I believe that participating in this program amidst the hustle and bustle of the season is good for the soul as it reminds us of the pure joy of giving without reward or recognition. I thank all of Highway's employees who generously participated. As Shel Silverstein wrote, 'And the tree was happy.'"


Contact your Salvation Army to see how you can start your own Giving Tree program.
