The City is once again teaming up with Santa’s helpers throughout the city to spread some holiday joy
A News Release from the City of St. Catharines in Niagara, Ontario
Posted November 14th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
The City marked the kickoff of its 21st annual Tree of Little Angels this past Monday, Nov. 12.
As part of the campaign, the City collects new, unwrapped gifts for local children from the community at locations across St. Catharines. Last year more than 500 toys were donated to Community Care through the Little Angels campaign.
“We have a proud tradition of giving back and supporting our community,” said Kevin Anstruther, special events assistant. “Our City staff and residents always pull together for the Tree of Little Angels to make sure Christmas morning is full of the surprises little boys and girls across St. Catharines are dreaming about.”
The City will accept new, unwrapped gifts for children up to 16 years old until Friday, Dec. 7.
Residents can support the campaign by taking a “Little Angel” off of one of the trees at various City facilities, purchasing a gift and returning it with the “Little Angel” to any of the Tree of Little Angels locations: City Hall, the City’s community centres and older adult centres, the St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre, the St. Catharines Kiwanis Aquatics Centre and the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre.
The City will also accept new toy and gift donations without “Little Angel” tags, as well as gift card donations.
Toy and gift donations support Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold.
