The ACV FIRST Program and Parent Advisory Council is sponsoring its 23rd annual Angels for Christmas gift-giving project. Children who reside in the A-C Valley School district may receive a new coat or clothes, new boots or shoes, and a wished-for toy. Parents who have children between the ages of 0 and 18 years (still in high school) in need of these items and cannot provide them for their children may contact the A-C Valley FIRST Program to request an application at 724-659-3224. Approved applicants will receive a phone call to schedule an appointment to fill out all necessary documents from 9 AM to 5 PM October 1st in the Emlenton’s Crawford Center Conference Room, October 7th in the St. Petersburg Borough Office or October 12th at the Parker Firehall or by private appointment with FIRST Program staff between October 13th and October 26th. All social distancing safety measures will be enforced during the sign-up process. Masks are required. All applicants must provide proof of residency at the time of their appointment. Only primary custodial parents/guardians may apply for this assistance for their children. There will be no sign-ups after October 26th, 2020.
Donations of gifts and money are graciously accepted from the community. The FIRST Program anticipates a greater need this year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and its effects on our families. Anyone wishing to purchase gifts for needy area children may contact the ACV FIRST Program by calling 724-659-3224.
To make monetary donations to the Angels for Christmas project please make checks payable to PAC and send them to: Maria Clark, ACV FIRST Program, PO Box 100, Foxburg, PA 16036.
