Dec 05, 2013 — A holiday tradition that's provided toys and clothing for needy families in the Canton area for decades continues this season. The Angel Tree tags, organized by the Canton Church and Community Program, are available on Christmas trees at local businesses, participating churches in Canton and the St. Lawrence University and SUNY Canton student centers. Over 250 children in Canton, Hermon, Clare, Dekalb, Russell and Rensselaer Falls will be served.
Organizer Pat Alden says, like similar programs in other communities, taking and fulfilling an Angel Tree tag helps provide a much brighter holiday for area children. Anyone looking for a tag can call Pat at 854-8130.
