MoDOT’s Christmas Angels Chili Dinner a Success

Local Businesses, Individuals Bring 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. Raising nearly $5,500 from the event will help underprivileged families in Southeast Missouri.

“It is touching to see such an outpouring of generosity, especially at a time when the economy is down,” said Transportation Project Designer Jeff Wachter. “The event continues to generate more and more proceeds each year.”

Wachter explained this year’s Christmas Angels Chili Dinner generated almost $500 more than last year’s event.

MoDOT began accepting orders for chili in early November. Despite a slow start, over 70 businesses and individuals lent their support through chili orders, gift cards and donations. Other area organizations provided their equipment to enable MoDOT volunteers to prepare chili.

“We can’t thank the businesses, organizations and individuals enough for their continued support of the Christmas Angels Program,” said Senior Design Technician Kathy Harrison. “They made it possible to help over 100 children this year.”

While the dinner 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 Division 10 Highway Employees’ Credit Union c/o Christmas Angels. If you or your company would like to be added to the list for the 2012 Christmas Angels Chili Dinner, please send your name, address and phone number to sechristmasangels@yahoo.com.
