CITY DEPARTMENTS SERVING AS ANGEL TREE GIFT LOCATIONS
Five tree locations for picking up gift tags and dropping off gifts
RAPID CITY, SD--It's a three-step process taking just a little effort on the part of community residents but it can have a life-lasting impact on a child.
It's easy as...Pick up! Shop it! Drop it off!
The City is participating in the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program this year with five tree locations. The public is encouraged to stop by one of the City's Angel Tree locations, pick up a gift tag from the Angel Tree containing a child's holiday gift wish, shop for that gift, then drop off the tag with the unwrapped item back at the same location.
Deadline to drop off the gifts is noon December 14.
"The City is pleased to participate again in this year's Angel Tree program," said Mayor Steve Allender. "There are various Angel Tree locations, including five City locations. There are few greater rewards than bringing happiness and joy to a child at Christmas and granting their gift wish."
City locations include:
*City/School Administration Center/300 Sixth Street: The Angel Tree with gift tags is located in the lobby. Unwrapped gifts and tags can be placed at the tree or taken to the Mayor's Office on second floor.
*The Parks and Recreation Office/515 West Boulevard: The Tree is located in the Parks and Rec office lobby and the tag and gift can be placed near the tree. They only have a few tags left but the public is encouraged to drop off unwrapped gifts that will be donated to the Salvation Army.
*Roosevelt Park Ice Arena/235 Waterloo Street: Pick up a tag from the tree located in the Ice Arena lobby and bring back the tag and gift to the Arena's front desk.
*Rushmore Plaza Civic Center/444 Mt. Rushmore Road: The Angel Tree is located near the Civic Center's massive holiday tree and the tags and gifts can be dropped off at the Civic Center's administrative offices.
*Rapid City Fire Department/10 Main Street: The Angel Tree will be located in the lobby of Fire Station 1 beginning Friday, November 30. Gift tags and gifts will be placed beneath the tree at the location.
