The Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank Angel Tree Program is officially underway.

Pick an angel from an angel tree at various locations around Kimberley and buy a gift for the child listed. All names are fictional, but ages are given so you can get the appropriate item. Gift value should not exceed $25.

Bring the unwrapped gift and the angel card you took back to the tree and the Food Bank will pick it up. Pick up date is December 14 so the gifts can be put in the Christmas hampers that go out later that week.
