Project Santa Claus announces annual Angel Tree locations

Staff Reports

Project Santa Claus Angel Trees with the Christmas wishes of less fortunate children are now available in businesses and churches around the community. This continues a 33 year tradition of the Project working to help our local children. The Project now coordinates with the Department of Social Services, the Washoe Tribe, CASA and Family Support Council to identify those who need the community’s support for their children to have a joyous Christmas.

Individuals and families may take one or more Angels, buy and wrap the requested gift and return it to the location where they picked up the Angel by Dec 8. That allows time for the project volunteers to take the gifts to the fairgrounds for sorting and distribution on Dec. 19. The Project also accepts new unwrapped toys that can be used to fill requests that come in too late to be included on the Angel trees.

The following locations will have boxes where unwrapped gifts may be dropped off:

■ St. Gall Catholic Church – 1343 Centerville Ln, Gardnerville

■ Anytime Fitness – 1352 US Hwy 395 N, Gardnerville

■ Taildragger Cafe – 1150 Airport Rd, Minden

For additional information we can be reached at (775)339-888, or on Facebook (Project Santa Claus).

Tax deductible monetary donations (Fed EIN 81-4108034) may be mailed to Project Santa Claus, PO Box 3031 Gardnerville, NV 89410. The Project can also acknowledge in memorial gifts and gifts offered in someone else’s name.
