Angel Tree

Angel Tree

We have received our Angel! If you are not familiar with Angel Tree, it is a chance for us to share the holiday spirit with others in the community who are less fortunate.  The program helps provide local children with gifts for the holidays.

PTK-BOO has sponsored RicKylah, a four year old girl.  She would like to have a bike, Doc McStuffins and Dora toys and books, and a baby doll with hair.  Her parents have listed her needs as clothing, shoes, and underwear.  RicKylah’s sizes are:

  • pants: size 9 in girls
  • shirts: size 8/9 in girls
  • shoes: size 9 in youth

If you would like to donate items to RicKylah, please bring them to Ms. Channell in the Midlothian library.  Donations are due by Wednesday, December 3rd before 12:00 p.m.  If you would like to donate funds to help purchase items for our angel, contact Ms. Channell at mchannell@jtcc.edu for more information.  Please send questions to this email as well.
