By Nichole Gouldie, Communications SpecialistChristmas for more than 200 families was a little merrier thanks to the generous donations to the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program.
It was the second year for the program at MKC, where employees adopted a child - buying them items for the holidays.
"The MKC Angel Tree Program was very successful again this year," said Matt Henderson, Longford location manager. "MKC employees helped to brighten the Christmas of around 200 children."

"Without their help this program would not have happened," Henderson said. The Abilene location helped 150 children this year.
Henderson added the families that have received gifts through the MKC Angel Tree have expressed their thanks in many ways and their tears of joy at the sight of the presents they receive is priceless. "It makes me proud to be a part of a company that is so willing to give so much back to their communities," he said.
