Earth Angels wanted

Posted: Friday, Nov 9th, 2012

Please help to help bring a lil Joy into the life of a child in need this Holiday Season…Earn your “Earth Angel” wings by sponsoring a child for Christmas... With your contribution of a toy or donation, he or she will know Santa didn’t forget them after all... Our goal is to reach out to families currently residing in Ogle County (but no family in need will be rejected) that has “fallen through the system” somehow, and is unable to receive any kind of assistance, but really could use an Earth Angel assigned to them to make this a special Christmas after all... All five branches of the military families qualify to if they reside in Ogle County. If you know of a family who “really” needs an Earth Angel, even if it’s your own family, please come forward and let us know, all the information is kept Confidential. .What is most important is gender & ages so gifts can be purchased and distributed accordingly… You can still earn your wings by volunteering to help bake,wrap, pick up or deliver when the time comes, even if it is for only an hour or two…Remember, the names being gathered need your help, generosity & opened hearts for toys & donations to make this a success!

Together, we can make Ogle County the largest group of bell ringing “Earth Angels” again this year!

Deadline for toys this year is Dec.14th at all our drop sites.

Distribution is done until all the toys have been distributed or delivered in time for Christmas.

Last year the majority of the presents already wrapped, were greatly appreciated! ”Earth Angel” headquarters will once again be at the Mt. Morris Seniors Center. Please note, any toys or donations are still accepted thru Christmas at the Mt. Morris Seniors Center.
