Christmas Angels Chili Dinner a Success
Local Businesses, Individuals Help Grant Christmas Wishes to Underprivileged Children

SIKESTON – Thanks to the generosity of numerous area businesses, organizations and individuals, the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Christmas Angels chili dinner was once again a successful event. Nearly $7,000 was raised through this year’s event. The profits brought in enough money to help 117 children in Scott and Mississippi Counties.

"The program began 30 years ago with a crockpot of chili and the desire to help at least one child," said MoDOT Senior Highway Designer Anita Clark. "The program has continued to grow. It is touching to see such an outpouring of generosity."

MoDOT volunteers work with the Department of Family Services to identify underprivileged children in the area.

"We can't thank the businesses, organizations and individuals enough for their continued support of the Christmas Angels program," said Clark. “They helped provide holiday wishes to SE Missouri families that otherwise would not have received any gifts.”

She added that she wants to thank the MoDOT employees who generously used their leave time to assist, as well as the MoDOT retirees who continue to help make the yearly event possible.

While this year’s event is complete, donations will continue to be accepted. Businesses or individuals wishing to donate to the Christmas Angels Program may send or drop their donations by the Division 10 Highway Employees’ Credit Union located at 337 N. Main St. in Sikeston, Mo. Checks can be made out to the Christmas Angels. If you or your company would like to be contacted for the 2017 Christmas Angels chili dinner, please send your name, address and phone number to sechristmasangels@yahoo.com.
