Detroit Area Agents Coming Together to Help Those in Need

Christmas-Tree-5-(1).jpgOn a cold snowy morning this past November, Professional Van Operators (PVOs) from Imlach Group (1130), DMS Moving Systems (0800), and Palmer Moving Services (1641) teamed up to load and deliver 70 fully decorated Christmas trees to support one of the Children’s Hospital of Michigan’s largest annual fundraisers, The Festival of Trees.
These generous Atlas Agents have donated this service for decades in support of this heartwarming cause.The Festival of Trees presents professionally decorated
Christmas trees, wreaths and other holiday gift shop items in a holiday display. Tickets to this spectacular event are available for purchase to the public at large.
Christmas-Tree-1-(1).jpgThe event has raised over $18 Million since it began 34 years ago. The money that is raised is placed in an endowment, and the proceeds go towards funding the research of childhood diseases. This research opportunity helps Children’s Hospital of Michigan recruit leading physicians to practice at the hospital.
