Officials from the Angel Tree campaign in Lethbridge are making one last big push for toy donations. Sparkling gifts are still needed to bring Christmas cheer to kids and families in need. Michelle Gallucci, the director of Angel Tree says this is a vital time as we draw closer to Christmas.
“We have the last 500 children to gift bundles for and we are really low on gifts and it’s just that year, right? Everyone is giving what they can. I super appreciate, but we just need that final push to get really good gift bundles to children, to bring magic to them, to bring hope. And we don’t want to give them less than the first 500. So that’s always our plan is the first 500 and the last 500 receive the same and we are asking the community for that just little help to get us over that hump. We have ten days till Christmas. We will deliver up until Christmas Day if we have to.”
A few of the main toys that still in high demand include: dolls, science kits, art supplies and sports related items such as soccer and basketballs.
