“Angel Trees” have been part of the Redfield landscape since 1988. Based on individual interviews, folks at the Tri-County Good Samaritan prepare a yearly list of their clients’ wishes. Each wish is written on an angel that goes on a tree. This year, trees will be found at the United Methodist Church, the United Congregational Church, Our Savior’s Lutheran Church and the Carnegie Libary in Redfield. Anyone can choose an Angel and then return the identified gift (unwrapped) to the Angel Tree by December 10. So no one goes without a gift, the Center has a group of volunteers that shop for gifts identified on the angels remaining on the trees. On December 12, the fun begins with volunteers who wrap every single gift.
The CNW Historic Depot and Modern Woodman has a different twist on the “Angel Tree.” The Depot is decorating a tree dubbed the “Tushies and Toes.” It features socks and underwear or anything that would cover a foot or a seat. The public is invited to add to the tree.
Be part of the giving this year. The opportunity is at church, the library, or the Depot. It will help make Christmas a little brighter for about 200 people.
