Two local ministries are working to make sure all good little boys and girls get special gifts this holiday season.
Gifts of an Angel Ministries will have local Angel trees where participants can select a child to sponsor. The trees will be at Palomas, Zebulon City Hall, American Pie and Margos Mediterranean Restaurant in Griffin.
The ministry will also host a coat drive for the homeless and accept jackets, hats, coats and blankets. All donations must be turned in by Dec. 10 at the drop off locations.

Joel Edwards Public Library, Harper Jaymes (Mustard Seed) in Molena, Highland Real Estate Investors LLC, Church of Joy, Providence First Baptist of Williamson and Griffin Moose Lodge.
“We also accept gift cards $5 to $25, to be given as gifts – gas, grocery, pop shelf and in town boutiques are great for the older students,” said Stacy Berry. “Chick-Fil-A, Dairy Queen, Burger King and Dollar Tree are some great ideas for all ages. If you would prefer to donate monetarily we have Cash App, PayPal and Venmo. Checks may be sent to P.O. Box 645, Zebulon, GA 30295.”
