NEO sponsors eighth annual Angel Tree program

Miami, Okla. – Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013 – Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) is sponsoring the Angel Tree program for the eighth consecutive year. Applications are due to the Ottawa County Department of Human Services no later than Monday, Nov. 15, 2013.

Last year approximately 800 children could have experienced a Christmas without the magic of Santa. They could have awoken Christmas morning and found very little- if anything awaiting them under the tree.

Instead, those hundreds of children who leapt out of bed on Christmas morning were greeted with packages adorned with their name.

They were put there by the Angel Tree program. The Miami community provided gifts for approximately 800 children whose parents were in need of assistance during the 2012 holiday season.

Paper angels, each representing a child in need, will be hung on Christmas trees at the Miami Walmart entrances beginning Friday, Nov. 22, 2013. Members of the community are invited to select an angel from the tree and purchase the gift listed on it. Those who are not able to travel to Miami to select an Angel can mail a monetary donation to the Angel Tree Fund at 200 I St. N.E., Miami, OK, 74354.

All gifts should be delivered or mailed to the Miami Walmart by Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013. Please securely attach the paper angel to its gift to ensure that it is delivered to correct child.

NEO would also like to extend its thanks to the businesses in the Miami community for their help and generosity.
