Time for angels, holiday spirit

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — The true spirit of Christmas again comes to the forefront with an annual drive to help local kids at Pauls Valley’s public library.

Known by many, it’s called the Angel Tree campaign.

It’s designed to make sure many children from low income families get some holiday gifts thanks to the generosity of others giving to the program.

Put simply - — it’s for those needing a little help getting their kids gifts at the holidays.

“This is for parents who need a helping hand and want to make sure their kids have something for Christmas,” said librarian Tina Hume.

The effort really gets going this coming week as those hoping to receive gifts may fill out application forms at the library, located at 210 North Willow on the east side of the county courthouse.

The Angel Tree sign up for gifts begins from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1

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

• Saturday, Nov. 2 - 10 a.m. to noon.

• Monday, Nov. 4 - 3 to 5 p.m.

• Tuesday, Nov. 5 - 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

• Wednesday, Nov. 6 - 5 to 7 p.m.

• Thursday, Nov. 7 - 10 a.m. to noon.

• Friday, Nov. 8 - 1 to 5 p.m.

Hume stresses these are the only times to sign up to receive gifts for this holiday season.

“There are the only days applications will be taken,” she said.

“There will be someone here to help people fill out the applications.”

With one application per child, the gifts to come from the “angels” is for Pauls Valley and Whitebead kids.

Each application represents a couple of gifts for each child. The gifts are to be valued up to $10 each.

Babies are also included in the gift giving drive with things like blankets, Hume said.

Anyone wanting to buy some gifts for the kids can pick up “angels” at the library starting that same opening day — Friday afternoon, Nov. 1.

On the back of each angel is the gender of the child, their age and two gift suggestions made by those filling out the applications.

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.
