Volunteers fill Santa’s bags for Christmas Day!
The 23rd annual Angels for Christmas gift-giving project was a huge success this year with more support than ever from the generous A-C Valley community and other neighboring communities who rallied to help those in need. 13 A-C Valley teachers, 41 community members, 5 clubs/organizations, 3 businesses, and 19 churches contributed gifts and monetary donations.
This year, 171 children ages birth through 12th grade from 81 families received new coats, clothing, shoes, boots and wished-for toys at our drive through pick-up at the Emlenton United Methodist Church. In addition, all children received bath and body products, socks, coats, hats, scarves, and stocking stuffers. Many, many thanks go out to the donors, volunteers, school staff, custodians and Family Center staff who helped to make this months-long project a success again this year for local families in need.
