Angel Trees to make Christmas wishes come true

As families prepare for the Thanksgiving holidays and show appreciation for the blessings in their lives, Faye Schneider and Humbly Serving Ministries are gearing up to give back to the needy members of the community. Angel Trees will be decorated at several local businesses with tags stating a local child’s name, age and Christmas wishes. The trees are donated each year by TNT Christmas Tree Farm and will be placed at the Humbly Serving Ministries office, Ben’s Hobby Computers, American Pie, Georgia BBQ in Williamson and Little Nicci’s Pizza in Griffin. All donations can be mailed to 7791 Highway 19 south, Zebulon. ’All the monetary and toy donations will go to families in need. When you see a family in need and you’re able to take away the stress of the holiday and give them the joy, that makes it all worthwhile,’ said Schneider. ‘The greatest gift is being able to give back. It’s priceless to see the joy in a child’s eyes who received so much from people they don’t even know. If people can’t do a lot, even if they just bring $1 or one can of food ‘“ if everyone does what they can ‘“ when we put it all together it turns into something great.’ Applications for Angel Tree tags will be taken at Humbly Serving Ministries in Zebulon between Dairy Queen and Ben’s Hobby Computers Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Humbly Serving Ministries will also try to provide food for Thanksgiving meals this year. Donations may be dropped at the office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. ’So many people are having to make do with so little and the need grows every year,’ said Schneider. ‘There are just so many people who need help and you never want to leave a child behind. Last year some of the parents picked up the toys with their children and you could see the joy in their eyes. Some of them were bigger kids who didn’t think they were going to get anything. Teens are often left behind because people only think about helping the smaller kids. We tried to fill teenagers’ needs as well and it was amazing to see the love in their eyes and the appreciation for what they were given. It’s important that we all stick together at a time when we’re all struggling to make a difference.’
