What a difference a week makes. Gloria Davis of Beta Nu reports fewer angels on the Angel Trees in local banks after some initial concerns of the trees remaining full last week.

“We’re doing well thanks to a great article,” said Davis referring to an article in last Wednesday’s Cadiz Record.

Though many angels have been selected for holiday shoppers to provide gifts for underprivileged children, special needs adults and senior citizens, several angels await selection by caring individuals or groups. Davis reported that the Downtown branch of the Bank of Cadiz still has nine angels awaiting adoption, the Lakota Drive Branch with two and Heritage Bank with six. Integra bank is now out of angels.

Every angel features the name of all children in a needy family, a special-needs adult or a senior citizen. Donors need only select an angel, purchase gifts according to a checklist, wrap the gifts with the angel’s number on each present, combine the gifts into a bag again with the angel’s number and leave the angel itself exposed in the bag with the completed checklist. Davis asked that all gifts be returned to the bank where selected by December 14.
