This year the Salvation Army and the Multi-Agency/Vision group will work together to provide Christmas presents for area young people. The Salvation Army will continue its Angel Tree program for children up to 12 years of age, and the Council will work to fulfill the needs of teenagers. This will take some of the load off the shoulders of Salvation Army, freeing their staff to concentrate on younger children. The Multi-Agency group will work with area Family Resource/Youth Service Center Groups to provide for teenagers through a program titled Teen Angel. The public is invited to make monetary donations, by dropping off checks or gift cards to Community Education, the ALIVE Center, or the Housing Authority Learning Center. Donations can be dropped off starting November 1. Make checks to Teen Angel, c/o Community Education Foundation.
The groups are working collaboratively to provide for needs, while helping Salvation Army shoulder the load.
For questions about these programs, contact Community Education at 270.842.4281. (Donations are tax deductible.)
