Angel Tree Opportunity: This program allows parents to give their child a gift for Christmas, during tough times. It is a very rewarding experience. Forms are received from the Food Bank, ATCAA and WIC of families that could use help dudring the holidays. These forms list items they need/want. We distribute cut out angels with their requests on them to various businesses in the county. Then the gifts are distributed at the Elks Lodge on the Monday before Christmas from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. I need someone to work on this with me. It would make it much simpler and easier. We will be starting up soon. Please contact Rose Marie Zwieg at (209)296-7974, zwiegrm@volcano.net
