North Lamar Athletics Angel Tree Project

Off the FieldGreg Higgins

Once again, the North Lamar athletic department has decided to adopt a group of angels from within their own school district. A total of 22 kids within the North Lamar school district will find their Christmas a little more jolly this season.

All the athletic deparments are represented and are taking care of a certain number of kids. Each deparment is operating under a certain number of guidelines to raise money for the program. Last year, they raised $8,000 and this year they are hoping to reach $15,000.

After the money is raised, students will travel to local stores to purchase toys and other gifts for each of the angels in the program. They will also be providing Christmas dinner for families this year.

This is not a fundraiser for the athletic department at North Lamar. Every penny raised is used to help make Christmas a little more enjoyable for those in the community. If you would like to hlep donate money or other items of need, please contact Nicole Nielson at 903-737-2000 ext. 2072.
