Students from the community resources class from the Social Service Worker Program from Selkirk College took part in this years Salvation Army Angel Tree Program.

The students partnered with the Salvation Army as part of their community project. The tree is located outside Save-On Foods at The Chahko Mika Mall. The tree is decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the age and gender of a child up to age 12, who is in need of a gift in Nelson. Gift contributors remove a tag from the tree and purchase the appropriate gift for the child described on the tag. The toy is then placed, unwrapped with the tag attached in the sleigh, adjacent to the tree.

If you are looking to make a difference Christmas morning for a child in Nelson, deadline to take part is December 20.
