Pine Belt partners with Salvation Army

Published 8:08pm Saturday, December 3, 2011

Pine Belt Wireless and Pine Belt Telephone recently partnered with the Salvation Army in Selma to bring Christmas to more children. Now through December, Pine Belt Customers can choose one of three agencies to receive a gift to be given to one of the agency clients when activating a new or renewing an existing Pine Belt service.

Pine Belt will then donate a new toy in the customer’s name to that agency’s Christmas program. The choices are The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree, Marengo County DHR’s Project Merry Christmas, and Choctaw County’s DHR Christmas Project.

“The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree is a great program and we are pleased to include it as one of the three programs can designate to receive toys this Christmas,” commented Pine Belt President, John C. Nettles. “At Pine Belt, we want to do anything that we can to make this Christmas as good as we can for all children in our Pine Belt service area,” Nettles continued.

Any customer who starts or renews telephone, internet, long distance or wireless service can make the choice. One toy will be donated in their name for each service activated. Pine Belt customers can visit the Pine Belt store in Selma, Marion or Camden to be a part of this special program.

“On Friday, November eighth, we delivered the first toys to Major Tonya Roberts at the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Kick Off. We hope our customers will pick the Angel Tree and give us the opportunity to deliver many more toys to this worthy cause,” said Beth Caver, Pine Belt’s Store Manager in Selma.

John Nettles added, “In 2011, we started special support programs for Volunteer Fire Departments and local schools.

“This is another effort to reach out and help those who are helping others in Marengo, Dallas, Wilcox, Perry and Choctaw counties. At Pine Belt, we like to be known as the ‘Neighbors You Can Call On’ and we are proud to be able to support our neighbors in every way that we can.”
