The Lawrence County Angel Tree project, which provides Christmas gifts for children in the county each year, is underway.

Second-grade students from Walnut Ridge and Hoxie School helped kick off the project on Nov. 30 by singing carols in the courthouse lobby, where the tree is located. Those wishing to purchase gifts may select angels from the tree through Friday. Gifts need to be returned to the County Clerk's Office by Monday.

Last year, the project provided Christmas gifts for 371 kids, and committee members expect to serve as many or more children this year.

Anyone who would like to adopt an angel or angels but cannot get by the courthouse, can email a request to County Clerk Tina Stowers at tina082458@yahoo.com. Monetary donations are always welcome, as well.

Anyone who needs more information or would like to volunteer to help distribute angels in the courthouse lobby can contact Stowers at 870-886-1111.
