Community Partners Pair up to Purchase Gifts for Foster Kids in Jackson County

The Christmas Angel Tree Program is a joint effort between DHR, The Community Service League and The Mountain Lakes Chamber to give Jackson County foster kids the best possible Christmas.

We began working in early November with a total of 86 children to purchase for and are now down to 12. Area residents, and businesses have been coming by for two weeks to adopt children that have created their wish list through the Department of Human Resources.

If you are interested in helping out, here are the details of how to get involved.

  1. Come by The Chamber of Commerce at 407 East Willow Street in Scottsboro.

  2. Pick an Angel from the tree in our front room.

  3. Purchase items on the wish list, most are approximately $125.00 per child

  4. Do not wrap items.

  5. Place all items in a dark garbage bag.

  6. Attach a copy of the wish list outside of the bag and place another copy inside the bag.

  7. Return to the Department of Human Resources of Jackson County no later than Thursday, December 6th.

  8. DHR is located at 205 Liberty Lane in Scottsboro.

  9. Donations are accepted. Please make checks payable to Community Service League/Angel Tree or The Mountain Lakes Chamber of Commerce. Mailing Address:
