The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program is a great way to bring joy into a child’s life. It’s easy and gratifying to make sure there is a much needed present waiting for a youngster when they wake up Christmas morning. Simply select a paper Angel from among those adorning the Angel Tree at the Circulation Desk; each represents a child and includes information such as their first name, age, gender and wished for gift. No need to wrap the present. Just drop off the gift with its Angel tag at the Circulation Desk by Dec. 19 for distribution through the organization’s Toy Store.
The food drive continues as the Library collects for the Salvation Army’s work during the Christmas season. These non-perishables are suggested by the staff: peanut butter, tuna, mayonnaise, jelly, oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti sauce and pasta. Donations of ethnic foods are encouraged. The collection container will be out on the main floor opposite the circulation desk through the end of December.
