The residents of Perkins County can help make Christmas a memorable one for little children in our communities who otherwise might not have a very joyful time by joining a county-wide effort.
The “Angel Tree” project is a way to give from the heart and make sure every child gets something they desire.
Giving money to this project or purchasing a gift card for groceries at Hatch’s Super Foods is a way to assure needy families a special Christmas season.
The project, organized by Grant United Methodist and New Life Fellowship churches,  is sponsored by the Perkins County Ministerial Association.
How “Angel Tree” Works
Donate money to the project through any pastor in the county. A present will be purchased to fulfill a child’s specific wish.
Anyone can suggest the name of a child along with age, size and desired present.
The deadline is Dec. 12.
Gifts will be delivered by Saturday, Dec. 19.
The New Life Fellowship and United Methodist churches in Grant will act as the clearing house for gathering information, purchasing and distributing the gifts.
Anyone who wishes to shop and purchase a present themselves for a child in need can contact Pastor Vince Carrig or Marlene Pritchett and get information on a desired gift from the list submitted.
The name of the child will remain confidential.
Christmas Meal Gift Cards
Some residents may choose to contribute toward the Angel Tree project in a different way —by contributing to a family’s holiday meal.
Anyone can pay for a $25 gift card at Hatch’s Super Foods which will then be distributed to a needy family in the county so they can purchase groceries for a special Christmas meal.
