Comfort Research and the Salvation Army continue their partnership bringing comfort to area families during Christmas.

Manager Will Wilson and the staff at the Lewisburg plant presented Salvation Army representative Christi Brown with a $5,000 donation for the Forgotten Angels program.

Forgotten Angels are the families not otherwise selected from the Salvation Army’s angel tree program during the holiday season.

“Those are people that could be completely left out,” said Wilson. “I feel really good about helping with that part.”

“That’s the piece that Comfort Research has really identified with,” he added. “One of our company goals is to provide comfort for all and the Forgotten Angels lets us provide that comfort.”

Brown said that the Salvation Army had 204 angels on this year’s Angel Tree, dedicated to providing gifts as well as food to families at Christmas.

Brown said that local companies, in particular, had stepped up this year and adopted most of the families on the tree, and Comfort Research’s contribution would take care of the 26 angels that had not been selected.

The company provided the same support to the program last year as well.

Comfort Research donates 10 percent of profits to charities or non-profit groups in communities where the company has a presence.

Earlier this month, the Lewisburg plant presented the Marshall County Imagination Library with a $5,000 donation as well, in order to support Imagination Library’s mission of providing books monthly to county children from birth through five years of age.
