Milton’s Better Together volunteer group, together with friends and neighbors, surprised a special lady in Milton with more than $800 in gift cards from Kroger and Walmart to make Christmas a bit more joyous for her and her family.

This expression of love and friendship came as a complete surprise to this individual who works at a local business in the Milton area, according to the news release posted on the city's website.    

Better Together member Teri Harrison organized this effort.  She and friends – who donned bells, angel wings and Santa and elf hats – presented the gifts just as if ole St. Nick himself had suddenly appeared.

In addition to the gift cards, an angel wrap blanket and “Be-Blessed” necklace were also given as gifts.

Better Together is a volunteer organization of Milton residents looking for unique and fun ways to connect with neighbors.  If you would like more information on Better Together or any of its activities, please visit the group's Facebook page or contact Community Builder Wayne Boston at 678-242-2512 or wayne.boston@cityofmiltonga.us.
