It’s time again for our local communities to make Christmas a little better for children-in-need by supporting the annual “Angels Unaware” program sponsored by the San Saba County Child Welfare Board (CWB). Shortly after Thanksgiving, they place a much worn Christmas tree in the atrium of the Arrowhead Bank building in San Saba decorated with little paper Christmas ornaments. Each anonymous “angel” is numbered and has the age (up to sixth grade), gender, and needs of a known child. The children who receive these gifts are not in CPS custody; but they are those for whom it has been determined that Saint Nick could use some help this year. “We greatly appreciate everyone’s past generosity, whether in providing a gift or helping in any way with the ultimate delivery of the gifts; and we hope to have similar success this year,” said Doug Suggs, CWB Board President. “This heartwarming project matches a local child to an anonymous donor to help spread the spirit of this season’s most miraculous gift.”Please take this opportunity to brighten a child’s holiday by this small act of kindness. Persons unable to go to the bank lobby and choose an angel from the tree or to select a gift thereafter may mail their request/donation to the CWB in care of Angels Unaware, P. O. Box 242, San Saba, Texas 76877 or give it to any CWB board member. A price limit of $30 was set to make the giving equitable and affordable. In addition, the San Saba Student Council has generously added packages of stocking candy for each child for several years now. Unwrapped gifts may be left in San Saba at the Courthouse or at Sisters’ Country Store, on or before December 16 for delivery by the San Saba Volunteer Fire Department beginning December 20. And, please, if you can provide the name, contact information, delivery address, sizes and wishes of a truly needy local child, please contact Maria Guerrero (372-5733) at State Farm Insurance or Jennifer Fleming (372-3747) at the Courthouse no later than December 12, to be included in this year’s gift delivery drive.
