In an abundance of caution due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Progress Rail has made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Christmas for Kids Charity Golf Outing in 2020.
We began this effort in 1993 with a goal to help children in need through a 52-person golf tournament. With almost 250 golfers in 2019, we were able to serve over 550 kids this past December. Through generous contributions from last year’s event, we hosted kids from our local school systems at our annual Christmas for Kids party, as Santa Claus welcomed each child with new school clothes, shoes, winter jackets and several toy surprises. Also, the Big Oak Ranch received a large contribution to assist children who call Big Oak Ranch home.
While we will not be holding our golf tournament this year, we realize many children will be in need this holiday season more than ever. For this reason, we invite you to make a tax-deductible contribution via PayPal or mail a check made payable to Christmas for Kids to Progress Rail, Attn: Christmas for Kids, P.O. Box 1037, Albertville, AL 35950. As a reminder, our Christmas for Kids organization is a registered 501c3 public charity.
Thank you in advance for your company’s continued support, especially in today’s tough environment.
We hope to see you for a fun day of golf at Hampton Cove in Huntsville, Ala., in October 2021.
