Andalusia Community Christmas Angels in need of adoption

You can help make a child’s Christmas merry and bright – a child whose needy family may not be able to afford presents under the tree this year.

Andalusia Community Christmas, Inc., a non-profit annual program funded by the citizens and civic clubs of Andalusia, assists families in financial crisis who live in the Andalusia, Straughn, Red Level and Pleasant Home School districts by providing toys and clothing for children between the ages of two and ten years old.

These families have registered approximately 200 children ages 2 to 10, including their clothing sizes and a toy the child has requested. Each child has been given an ID number. Their information has been written on an angel card and the angels can be adopted at area businesses.

Angels can be adopted at the following locations:  CCB Community Bank, Southern Independent Bank, Wal-mart, and Piggly Wiggly.

The packages along with adopted angel card are to be dropped off on Friday, December 11, from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday, December 12, from 8 a.m. – noon and Sunday, December 13 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the Kiwanis Building on the South Bypass.
