Sharon Hill, Director of the Big Sandy Agape House, has announced that she has started taking applications for this year’s Angel Tree. Applications are being taken at the Agape House office (306 N. Tyler St.). All applicants must be in the Big Sandy school district, provide proof of income, expenses, and address.

Each year, Christmas trees with local children’s ‘Santa lists’ are placed at First National Bank-Big Sandy and Austin Bank. The list will include clothing sizes and toy requests. This is a great opportunity for families to reinforce the blessing of giving by helping other families. The ‘angels’ will be available beginning Friday, November 10th. If you are unable to shop for gifts, project coordinators Tiffany and Jonathan Lawrence, will be happy to accept your monetary donation and shop for your selected ‘angel.’

Donations of food for holiday food boxes are also being accepted. If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Hill at the Big Sandy Agape House – 903-636-4471. God’s blessings on you and your family.
