The West Texas Children's Advocacy Center has once again partnered with Wal-Mart to provide a way for many children in the area to have a better Christmas. This year's tree is called Amy's Angel Tree, in honor of Amy Rainey, a victim of domestic abuse. Amy first brought the idea of an Angel Tree to the WTCAC eight years ago. She knew the value of giving during the holiday season.
The angels represent a child who has received services this year through the WTCAC. Each angel has a child's gender, age, size and any special needs or wants - favorite toys, characters, etc. Clubs, organizations and individuals are invited to choose a child or children to shop for, buy needed items and leave them at designated places at Wal-Mart or bring the unwrapped items to the WTCAC at 317 Oak Street in Sweetwater or 1907 40th Street in Snyder. For more information, call 235-1818 or 573-2800. The angels have been on the tree beginning Wednesday, Nov. 23.
