This year, over 720 angels adorned the Columbia County Angel Tree, located in the D.W. Reynolds Campus and Community Center of Southern Arkansas University.
Several angels have already been placed with sponsors, thanks to the Magnolia Junior Charity League and sponsors from the SAU and surrounding community, but the Dec. 13 deadline leaves a short time to match the remaining angels with sponsors and to collect and wrap gifts in time for distribution Dec. 19. As of Dec. 5, there were more than 450 names remaining on the tree awaiting sponsors.
Individuals, families or groups interested in sponsoring an angel, can come to Reynolds to adopt an angel from the Angel Tree. Don’t have time to shop? Donations of money, time or wrapping supplies are always welcome and extremely helpful. Please contact Shannin Schroeder at 870.235.4211 to find out more.
Angel Tree would not be able to bring Christmas to so many children were it not for the continued support of SAU and the support of the community members.
