National Life Group to host holiday event for homeless children

National Life Group Do Good Fest TX 2022

Addison, TX - (November 29, 2022) National Life Group (NLG) will be spreading the good 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 6 with a holiday event supporting Vogel Alcove, an early childhood development and parent opportunity center for homeless families. Vogel Alcove children, families, and the staff are invited to the event at Dallas’ Old City Park.

For the second year, NLG will provide a delicious holiday meal as well as fun activities and pictures with Santa Claus.

In November 2021, 60 NLG employee volunteers and community partners served meals to 250 guests. Children were entertained by a bubble show and visits with Santa. Guests left the event with take-home food, a gift bag, diapers, and children’s books.

"Our founders had a national vision to take care of the underserved,” National Life Group Chairman, CEO and President Mehran Assadi said. “It is a privilege to serve those in our communities.”

This year’s partners include NTT Data and Cognizant.

“The children and families we serve at Vogel Alcove are often recovering from severe trauma and they’re just getting back on their feet—so the holidays can be difficult,” Vogel Alcove President and CEO Karen Hughes said. “Joyful holiday moments like this event are such a wonderful way to uplift these families and celebrate our blessings. We are so excited to host this event with National Life Group for a second year.”
