It is the holiday season. Homes are decorated in special ways, lights appear in windows and on bushes, choral concerts feature age old melodies, stores stay open longer for shoppers, traditional recipes are made, family and friends make extra efforts to get together.
The River Center Christmas Angels program was established to help families through providing a couple of gifts for children at the holidays. We have two focus areas – first to get as many of our identified families hooked into existing programs in our region and second to help supply gifts for those who are not covered by the existing Christmas programs this year. I maintain a list of regional contacts and programs so that during October I can refer as many people as possible.
