Allen Matkins was awarded the “Betty Bartley Angel with a Heart Award” by the Orange County Council on Aging, recognizing the firm’s generous assistance with its SmileMakers program over the holidays. Pamela L. Andes accepted the award on behalf of the firm from Lisa Wright Jenkins, President and CEO of Orange County Council on Aging for helping to bring nearly four thousand gifts to the elderly throughout Orange County. With over 387,600 seniors living in Orange County, Allen Matkins is proud to help bring smiles to some of them.
The SmileMakers program provides an opportunity to bring smiles and holiday cheer to some of the most venerable and vulnerable members of our community. Orange County Council on Aging works year-round to bring cheer to Orange County Seniors. Each year the Holiday Project wraps and delivers holiday gifts to Orange County seniors who have no close family or friends and are living alone or in residential care facilities. Employees in the Orange County office volunteered to purchase Christmas gifts, such as sweaters and jackets, for the elderly in our community.
