The annual Angel Tree Project is underway and your support is needed to help make this holiday season merrier for 258 children from 128 families. This is the Angel Tree’s 29th year of serving the children of DeKalb County.
“The Angel Trees are located at all bank locations in Smithville and Alexandria,” said spokesperson Laura Stone. “Each Angel represents a child and his or her wish list for Christmas. The process is very simple. Just go to your bank and select an Angel from the tree, shop for your Angel from their wish list and return your gifts to the bank where you picked up your Angel by December 1st.”
“Make sure your presents are clearly marked with your Angel number. The wish list on the Angel tag is just a suggestion. It is what the child specifically asks for. Sometimes people will buy only what is on there.”
“In some cases, they will buy additional things. It is not necessary that you buy everything on the list. If you have no time to shop, donations are always accepted and appreciated and we will do the shopping for you. This program would not be a success without the continued support of our community pulling together and making Christmas special for these children,” said Stone
