Elder angels ready for adoption
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Officials with the Cherokee Nation’s Human Services said the department’s Elder Angel Tree in the Tribal Complex has more than 240 angels that are available for adoption.
“This is the largest number of requests we’ve ever had, so please come adopt an Elder Angel and make their Christmas special,” Crystal Thomas, Family Assistance assistant manager, wrote in a Nov. 6 email. “All of our elder angels are low-income and might not get a present if it weren’t for the Elder Angel Tree.”
Once a donor selects an angel, he or she must take it to the Human Services receptionist for recording. The donor then has until Dec. 4 to shop and return wrapped gifts for the angel. Human Services officials said donors should consider gift bags over wrapping because they are easier for elders to unwrap.
All gifts must be returned to Human Services so that employees can deliver them to the angels.
