Angels are on tree, waiting for adoptionPublished 12:02am Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Junior Auxiliary of Natchez is a service organization of women dedicated to the needs of children in the Natchez area.
One of the service projects is our Angel Tree.
Catholic Charities and the Department of Human Services each year provide Junior Auxiliary with a list of names who they feel would best benefit from the Angel Tree.
The project will place gifts into the hands of approximately 200 children who might otherwise go without.
These names are then placed on angel ornaments which are hung on a Christmas tree. You can pick an angel off the tree, purchase a gift and return it to the tree wrapped with the angel attached.
For more than 15 years, the Junior Auxiliary has worked to brighten the season through this project.
It helps relieve the financial burden that inevitably comes with Christmas shopping for struggling families.
Christmas can be a stressful time of year, especially for those who are less fortunate.
The Angel Tree is now under way, and there is still approximately 100 ornaments left to be adopted.
Let’s make Christmas special for these last remaining angels. It feels good to be a part of this project and to see the wonderful generosity of the Natchez community.
You can pick your angel up at Concordia Bank and Trust Co. in Natchez located 45 Seargent S. Prentiss Drive.
This Friday will be the last day to drop off gift.
Monetary donations are also accepted, which will go to buy the remaining angels that are not adopted.
