Calling all angels

Angel wreaths are spread out across town to help children in need have a Christmas they wouldn’t otherwise have. Rendezvous Pointe hosts the Angel Wreath program every year with the help of businesses and community members. Applications were given to low-income families through the school’s free lunch program and the Food Basket. With parents’ help, the children fill out three needs and three wants for each child. The children then get two angels each – one angel with their wants and one with their needs. Children ages 13 to 18 can ask for gift cards to specific stores local or online for their wants. When angels are disbursed on wreaths throughout the county, members of the community can take as many angels as they want and pick up the gifts. Those who want to donate money for school lunches or gift cards may do so by calling Patty Nigbur at Rendezvous Pointe, 307-367-2881. It is asked that everything donated for the Angel Wreath Program be unused. After the gifts are handed in, the Rendezvous Pointe staff will take two days to shop for the things not purchased. If an angel is not returned, it is considered lost and those gifts are added to Rendezvous Pointe’s shopping list.
