The New Beginnings Angel Mission Free Store in Calumet needs the community's help finishing buying gifts for local children from their angel tree. Over 270 toddlers and teens are signed up for the angel tree this year.
The Angel Mission had the childrenâ??s parents write three wants and three needs on the kids' Christmas lists. There are still over 100 children to buy gifts for just a few days before the holiday, and the Angel Mission says they will accept money donations as well.
They will be taking gifts as late as Christmas Eve to get the gifts to the families by the 25th.
â??We did some kids last year. We did some teenagers, and one child said, 'This is the first gift Iâ??ve ever gotten.' He was 16, 17,â?? said Angel Mission Co-Director, Terry Bazin. â??That's why we do it.â??
