    Nashville Junior Auxiliary is again sponsoring the
    Angel Tree Program this year. Organizer Ruth Steely
    says the organization received numerous applicants
    and that a number of angels are now available at several
    locations around town. The locations to pick up
    angels include Ruth Steely Farmers Insurance Agency,
    Bear State Bank, Power Pharmacy, Red River Credit
    Union, and Unique Body Salon. “All you need to do is
    pick out an angel…each has an age, gender, and request.
    Gifts do not have to be wrapped and must be returned
    by Dec. 9.”
    Steely says the gift requests are for needy children
    and that those requests are not just toys. “Many of the
    requests this year are for clothing or small items. We
    even had one child that asked for food. There is a great
    need and I’m proud to be a part of an organization that
    is giving back to the community.”
    Steely says the JA Angel Tree project is helping 28
    families in the community this holiday season. “Thanks
    in advance to our supporters because we could not
    help these children without you.”
    Nashville Junior Auxiliary is also sponsoring a
    canned food drive at the local schools. The canned
    food donated will also go towards the Angel Tree Program
    and will be given to those families that signed up
    for assistance.
    All gifts are due back by Dec. 9. For any questions,
    call 845-2500.
