Angels for Christmas programAngels For Christmas Applications are now available through Nov. 29 for children in need this Christmas. Angel Trees are sponsored by local neighbors and businesses and it is not a government funded program. It is run by volunteers for Box Elder County residents.
Children ages 0-18 (still in high school) will receive three gifts: a wish, a need, and a pair of shoes and socks. Each family will also receive a reading book and a necessities box with items to help in the home.
Applications may be picked up at the Department of Workforce Services, Brigham City Food Pantry and Tremonton Food Pantry.
We can use many local families and businesses in this effort. If you are interested in sponsoring angels, please contact USU at (435) 919-1350, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be trees at the main street Brigham USU, Tremonton USU, and other areas in town to pick up angels.
