Angel Tree is an annual project that serves underprivileged children to ensure that no child goes without a gift on Christmas. Last year the Carbondale community gave gifts to 200 children locally. Sadly, many families last year asked for coats rather than toys for their children’s gift. This year Angel Tree wants to provide a toy and a coat if needed, so they are having a coat drive to collect as many gently used coats (all sizes needed, infant to adult) for the families to choose from when they pick up their Angel Tree gifts.
Please go through your closets and pull out those coats and winter hats that you no longer need or use. A donation box is inside the door, next to the water fountains at the 3rd Street Center. It will be there October 20th – December 5th for you to drop off your donations.
