The Junior Auxiliary of Clinton has begun their annual Angel Tree project, which benefits children within the Clinton Public School District. The service organization partners with the Clinton Community Christian Corporation (4C’s) to identify families in need who are currently facing challenges and may need assistance in making Christmas memories for their children.
Each child has an angel for clothing needs and one for wishes. This way, each child receives clothing items (which help meet a need), as well as something fun. Organizers ask that two shirts and two pairs of pants be purchased for each clothing angel. The wishes include items such as games, educational items, and bicycles. The fulfillment cost for an angel typically ranges between forty and sixty dollars.
Angels are available for pick-up at Funtime Preschool, Holy Ghost Baptist Church, Parkway Pharmacy, Northside Baptist Church, CrossFit Chi-Rho, the YMCA, and the Baptist Healthplex. Items collected for each angel should be returned to the location from which the angel was originally placed, with the exception of bicycles, which may be taken to the 4C’s November 30-December 7. All items should be returned by December 1.
