Social Services Division Arranges Annual Angel Tree
Dec 5, 2016
AKWESASNE – On Tsiothóhra/December 5th, (from left) Krystal Phillips and Breanne Herne of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Social Services Division placed an Angel Tree in the Community Building Lobby. It is an annual initiative that collects gifts and shares much-needed Christmas cheer with children in one of the division’s programs-- Preventive, Foster Care, Child Protective Services, Intensive Preventive Program, Akwesasne Group Home, or the Three Sisters Program. They are asking for the community’s help to bring joy to children during the upcoming holiday season. If you are interested, please choose an ornament from the Christmas Tree. The ornament will specify the gender and age of the child for selecting an appropriate gift easier. Gifts may be dropped off at the Preventive Services Building, located at 367 State Route 37 during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Monday through Friday until December 16th. Please leave the gifts unwrapped with the ornament attached. If you have any questions, please contact Shari Adams at Preventive Services by calling (518) 358-4516. On behalf of the children and families the Tribe’s Social Services Division work with, Niawen:kówa/Thank you very much for your generosity and have a happy holiday season.
