There are more local children than ever before, in need of gifts, for the 23rd annual Family-to-Family Christmas Project and time is running short.
Christine Ravely, Family-to-Family Project Coordinator, was Tuesday’s KVML’s “Newsmaker of the Day”.
“This is an emergency for ninety-six of our local area kids” Ravely said. “We’ve already had angels picked up for five hundred children but we really need toys by Wednesday for these final ninety-six.”
Ravely is asking for the publics help.
Simply visit one of the participating local banks, pick up an angel which will list if the child is a boy or a girl and how old they are, buy a toy, wrap it, bring the angel and the gift back to the bank by Wednesday.
Participating banks include: West America Bank in the Crossroads Shopping Center, US Bank in Twain Harte, Umpqua Bank in Jamestown, Bank of America in downtown Sonora and east Sonora and finally Motherlode Bank in downtown Sonora and at the Junction Shopping Center.
Toys will be distributed within the next few days. Family-to-Family is in its 23rd year in conjunction with local law enforcement, Benites Distributing and Clarke Broadcasting.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:46, 7:46 and 8:46 AM.
