Maggie Grace Angel Tree

The annual Angel Tree is again on the first floor of the Haakon County Courthouse among the Parade of Trees.

Please leave an unwrapped gift - toy, book, stuffed animal, new article of clothing - for any age of child under this tree by Wednesday, December 20. Gifts for teenagers are especially needed.

The Philip FCCLA Chapter, in conjunction with the local churches and the Haakon Community Health Office, will distribute the donations to children in need in the Philip area. Gifts beyond our community's needs will be distributed by the Jackson Community Health Office and the Bennett County foster child program.

The FCCLA wishes for those who donate to take an angel off of the tree to take home with them. The Angel Tree is dedicated in the hope that needy children in the area will be shown the spirit and love of Christmas through contributions of toys, books, new clothes or stuffed animals.

This Angel Tree is in memory of Maggie Grace, an infant who died suddenly of complications from a very rare respiratory bacteria.

If you know of a child in need or would like additional information, contact Brigitte Brucklacher, FCCLA adviser at Philip High School 859-2680.
