The Community Angel Foundation was born out of desire to see children smile. Founder Veniece Newton noticed that too often impoverished children go without receiving gifts on Christmas Day, so she began to look for ways in which she could help out. Veniece, with the support of friends, family and professional contacts, started to receive letters addressed to Santa Claus written by children in need. She then started a toy drive and personally delivered the requested toys to the children’s homes.
Today the organization has evolved and grown to acquire 4 additional programs which looks to enhance the lives of children through education, support and guidance.
The Community Angel Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that is dedicated to educating, encouraging, and empowering underprivileged youth and families across the globe.
