The United Way of North Central Arkansas will begin releasing the names of children participating in this year’s Angel Tree program, Monday, Nov. 12, the agency noted in a press release.
Each year, United Way of North Central Arkansas helps hundreds of children each year know the joy of opening a gift on Christmas morning through the Angel Tree Program.
In 2018, the agency “…will be providing nearly 400 children of low-income families in Independence County with Christmas gifts,” according to the release.
United Way relies upon individuals and businesses to select an “Angel” and provide them with the gift of joy on Christmas morning. Names will be available to purchase gifts for the Angels from Nov. 12 through Nov. 30 at the following locations:
Centennial Bank, 1895 Harrison St. – Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Citizens Bank, 200 S. 3rd St. – Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
