As we celebrate 10 years of spreading joy to families around the holiday season, we are highlighting some of the incredible impact we’ve had over the past decade with you.
Layaway Angel Moriah Jefferson, point guard for the Dallas Wings, helped surprise over 90 families at Burlington Stores in Dallas in 2021.
The families were surprised with the news when they arrived at the store.
For some, this was the miracle they were waiting for. One recipient described how impactful this gift was to him and his family during the 2021 holiday season.
Having just survived Hurricane Ida, they had lost a large portion of their belongings in the storm and had put some essential items on layaway at Burlington.
“We needed it. We just came from Hurricane Ida so we were here from the storms. It’s a blessing and we appreciate it, we really do,” he explained.
Among the items he was able to take home to his family were new winter coats to replace the ones that had been destroyed by the storm.
The generous contributions from T-Mobile, along with the help of Dallas Wing’s Moriah Jefferson, gave nearly 100 families a special holiday moment and helped them head into the new year with high hopes.
