JA Angel Tree ready for local ‘angels’

From staff reports


With Christmas less than 35 days away, many children have already commenced to making out their Christmas wish lists.

Some children, however, will have to depend on the generosity of the community to receive the gifts they desire.

One local organization has taken the initiative to help make sure that area children receive their wish for Christmas.

The Junior Auxiliary is sponsoring the annual Angel Tree. The Angel Tree is located at the Winston County Library.

A Christmas wish list from needy families is located at the library. Persons may select a wish list and then provide items for that family.

Each lists has the specifics for a child: their age and sex, gift suggestions, clothes and shoe sizes. The gifts may be brought to Winston County Baptist Association at 1001 N. Columbus Ave by December 9.

Those on the lists range from infant to teens.

“Please help the needy children in Winston County, by adopting an Angel today,” stated JA volunteers.

The purpose of the Angel Tree is to match needy children with anonymous, generous donors.

For those unable to purchase a gift, the Junior Auxiliary does accept monetary donations to help purchase gifts for all those in need.

All the names for this year’s tree have been finalized.

“Thanks for helping the Louisville Junior Auxiliary make someone’s Christmas wish come true,” stated JA volunteers.
