Making Rainbows childcare center of Hope will again conduct its annual “ROC Angel Tree” project.
The goal of the project is to provide a merry Christmas complete with toys, clothes, and essentials for many area children of Rainbow of Challenges whose family fulfilling their Christmas wishes may be impossible. In 2014, more than 165 children had their wishes filled.
An “ROC Angel Tree” will be located at a front entrance at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Hope beginning Monday, November 23, and each tree is filled with deserving “Angels”. Those wishing to participate may simply pick a number off the tree where they will find specific information on each child such as shoes and clothes sizes, specific wishes, etc.
After purchasing the items on the “Angel’s” wish list, the unwrapped toys and items may be dropped off at the Rainbow of Challenges Administration building located at 500 South Main Street in Hope. The items will then be distributed to the families of the “Angel” during the month of December.
Those who purchase items are urged to attach the number of their “Angel” when they drop off their items in order to match it to the name on the list being kept at Making Rainbows.
Making Rainbows has also teamed with Tyson Foods of Hope for additional “ROC Angel Tree” toys, toiletries, and gifts. The Tyson employees will again provide many heartwarming smiles through their generous efforts.
