Angels again part of holiday spirit — The spirit of the upcoming Christmas season is nearly upon us, especially at Pauls Valley's public library where the annual Angel Tree campaign will again call home.

With the tree going up soon in the front area of the library at 210 North Willow, the angels placed on the tree represent gifts for Pauls Valley and Whitebead students who need a helping hand during the holidays.

Sign up will begin early this week for those looking to receive gifts for the kids, while angels can picked up the following day for anyone wanting to give the presents.

“People need to remember that there are children, other than Angel Tree, this may be the only gifts they may receive for Christmas,” said librarian Susan Skipper.

“This is for low income children who attend Pauls Valley and Whitebead schools.”

The Angel Tree sign up for gifts begins from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13.

The only other remaining sign up times, all at the library, are:

• Nov. 14, 4 to 7 p.m.

• Nov. 15, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• Nov. 16, 2 to 4 p.m.

• Nov. 17, 10 a.m. to noon.

“Applications will only be taken on those days,” Skipper said. “We really need people to come in on the days of the applications.

“A parent or guardian has to do the application.”

With one application per child, the gifts to come from the angels is for PV and Whitebead kids 18 years old and younger.

Each application represents a couple of gifts for each child, Skipper said.

“We'll still be doing two gifts in the range of $10 per gift,” she said. “That's for each child.”

Those wanting to help need to remember there should be no CD's DVD's, video games, clothing or used toys.

Help can also come without picking up an angel as people can come to the library and donate money or drop off an unwrapped gift.

For those who would like to take an angel or two from the Angel Tree, gifts for the kids need to be returned unwrapped to the library by Nov. 27.
