Angel Tree: A community project

    Our community is amazing. The Angel Tree Project buys Christmas gifts for an estimated 300+ less-fortunate children each year. The Emblem Club took on this project a few years ago and it is an enormous task. When we collected money on Nov. 6, the response was tremendous. We could not have done it without volunteers from local businesses and individuals who were decked out with us in those cute angel wings. This is a community project sponsored by a caring community and we thank each and every one of you. Now comes the organization of making sure each child on the list receives something special along with toothbrushes, pajamas, or clothing. The Angel Tree Project Committee of the Emblem Club truly thanks you for your support each year. This is truly a community project.
