The Giving Tree Lighting Ceremony  

For the past 14 years, The Sixth Company has collaborated with Salvation Army - Annapolis to make this event successful. The USNA faculty, staff, and brigade of midshipmen, contribute to provide a memorable holiday for over 500 children in the Annapolis area. As a brigade, we are excited to give back to the community in every way we can because of the support we continuously receive. The happiness and joy that is brought to the children of Annapolis is a true representation of the Christmas and holiday season. This year there were 630 Angels placed on the tree meaning there were 630 children who unwrapped a gift this holiday season. Project leaders hope to have up to 1000 angels next year.
