Angel Charity for Children volunteer collects gifts for children


TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – Each week, KOLD News 13 partners with Casino Del Sol to highlight a person or organization that goes beyond the community.

This week, we introduce you to one of the angels watching over Tucson.

Kellie Terhune Neely is a retired marketing executive with a career spanning nearly four decades. She works closely with local nonprofits and children’s organizations.

“One of the commonalities I found was that they all brought back to Angel Charity for Children working every day, visiting local businesses and collecting gifts,” she said.

Neely says she is one of 200 angels who volunteer. Several of his volunteer colleagues have children who have received support from Angel Charity for Children organizations.

“And so in turn, you know, they volunteer to help raise funds and to see all the children who have been helped and to see these children and their families grow has been rewarding,” she said. .

On behalf of Casino Del Sol, Neely received a $300 gift card.

“This is going to make a huge difference for the children in our community. I don’t think I’m going to retire,” she said. “It will always be part of my being and part of my contribution. Children are the heart and soul of our community.
