70 Children Still Need Presents



The Salvation Army angel tree still holds the names of 70 underprivileged children who won't get a Christmas present unless someone from the community steps forward.

An angel tree is waiting at the National Bank of Arizona. Its boughs are still bent with angels waiting for shopping trips from the public.

The Salvation Army is sponsoring the tree, which has approximately 70 angels still on it.

These angels each have a list of things wanted by an underprivileged child at the Time Out Shelter, a child from the Payson Community Kids program or one referred to the Salvation Army.

The angel indicates the gender and age of the child to help choose an appropriate gift.

Gifts are needed by Dec. 20 so they can be wrapped and included with the other donations to community members in need.

Stop by the National Bank of Arizona, 804 S. Beeline Highway in Payson, and choose an angel from the tree to do your part for the less fortunate during the holiday season.

Residents can also contribute donations to the Payson Humane Society in a drop box at the bank.

The bank lobby is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday.
