Elk Point-Jefferson’s Angel Tree was helped out this year by trees at area churches – Elk Point Baptist, Elk Point United Parish, Immanuel Lutheran, St. Joseph Catholic and St. Paul Lutheran. There were tags for 30 families and 84 children, about 300 tags total. (Each child can have four tags – shirt/toy, pant/toy, coat and underwear/socks/toy). The toy tag was new this year. Last year, the tree served 23 families and 56 children.

Area residents brought in over 300 gifts that filled every spare inch in the administration rooms.
