If anyone wants to sponsor an Angel for Christmas let me know. There are a couple ways you can help out. 1. I can give you the info to shop for them personally. (Ex. Of Angel info is posted.) 2. You can shop online and deliver to me or the school. I’ll wrap the gifts for you. 3. You can buy an individual item like shoes, coat, toy, etc. 4. If you would like to just get a gift card or give a monetary donation for me to shop for them that works too. This program is to provide basic needs. I give the required items, but also list other acceptable items or ideas. It is Christmas so toys are okay. I just ask to try to keep things equal for everyone, especially if there are multiple children in the family.
