The community 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 2 and 10 years old.

These families have registered 212 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: CCB Community Bank, Southern Independent Bank, Walmart, and Piggly Wiggly.

The packages along with adopted angel card are to be dropped off on Friday, Dec. 9, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 10, from 8 a.m. to noon; and Sunday, Dec. 11 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Kiwanis Building on the South Bypass. Gifts should not be wrapped.

Tax-deductible contributions can also be mailed to Andalusia Community Christmas, Inc., P.O. Box 1525, Andalusia, AL 36420. FEIN# 20-0211790
