The dedicated volunteers for the Angel Tree program in Wayne County are to be commended for organizing another hugely successful event this year. Program Director Amy Van Fleet, who puts in countless hours every year for the Angel Tree, said that 524 children right here in Wayne County will have a full Christmas this year thanks to the Angel Tree.
Can you imagine, from a child’s perspective, waking up on Christmas morning to find nothing under the tree? Unfortunately, that is the case for far too many children, many of whom live right here in Wayne County. Thanks to the Angel Tree program, 524 of those children in Wayne County will be able to receive and enjoy wonderful Christmas gifts this year.
Mrs. Van Fleet said that all this is possible because Wayne Countians stepped up and adopted angels, donated money or toys, shopped, and bought from the various independent fundraisers that benefited the Angel Tree.
“This is what it is all about,” said Mrs. Van Fleet as she looked around at the many presents ready to go to local children. “Just think of all the smiles on Christmas morning!”
