Community Christmas organizers say they are missing gifts for 50 angels who were “adopted” and are shopping for 60 children who weren’t adopted by members of the community.

Those who have gifts they have not yet dropped off may do so this Fri., Dec. 7, between the hours of 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Kiwanis Center. Packages also may be dropped off at the Chamber of Commerce office, located on River Falls Street.

Community Christmas president Larry Avery said the organization spends about $60 per child for whom the group shops, wo it will need a minimum of $1,800 to take care of the remaining angels.

Donations are tax-deductible and should be mailed to Andalusia Community Christmas Inc., P.O. Box 1525, Andalusia, AL 36420.
