in honor of Labor Day Holiday.
The head of Christmas on the Mountain has officially announced her retirement—and is looking for her replacement. Julie Vaden says she is ready to focus on work-life balance after devoting the past 14 years to the organization that provides toys to Cumberland County children each year. Christmas on the Mountain began when employees at Homes America collected toys for children as a way to give back to the community. 37 children were served that first year. The program grew from that simple idea to where it is today—this past Christmas more than 500 children were presented with gifts donated by the community and with monies raised by the organization. Vaden says she is actively seeking her replacement in this very rewarding organization. If you or someone you know is interested, you are asked to contact Julie Vaden at Christmas on the Mountain on Facebook
