A tree of angels
Area residents are invited to partner with the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team and local businesses to help families who live in poverty and fear have a Merry Christmas.
The Vision Center, Curves and LifeCare Specialty Hospital of North Louisiana, formerly known as HealthSouth, have put up Christmas angel wish trees. Each paper angel ornament carries one wish for a Christmas gift or a much-needed item.
“Our Christmas angels don’t carry frivolous requests,” said Cathy Ayo, DART’s executive director. “Our kids have asked for things they need like new underwear and tennis shoes. No item on the list exceeds $30; most cost considerably less.”
