As the Fall semester comes to a close, many students will be facing the
challenge of providing gifts to their children this holiday season.  The
Student Association and the staff of the Hancock County Higher Education
Center is sponsoring an Angel Tree to help children of students in need.
Children or grandchildren or foster children receiving their primary care
from a student and between the ages of 0-18 years are eligible.

The tree will have Angel Tags that list the gender and age of a child in
need along with a suggestion for a gift.

*To sponsor an Angel:* Choose a tag, put your name and phone number on it,
and give the tag to a staff member or student worker.  Gifts should cost no
more than $25 per child.  *Please bring the UNWRAPPED gift to the Center no
later than 4:00 pm, Thursday, December 20th* .  Please give the student
worker or staff member your name so we can match the gift to the “angel”.

*To make a request for your child(ren)*, please email
