CIS of Greenbrier County hosts fifth annual Angel Tree Event, asks community to help purchase gifts for 200 children

By RealWV Staff,

With more than 200 children on their list this year – and yes, they’ve checked it twice – Communities In Schools of Greenbrier County (CISGC) needs everyone’s help ensuring that the holidays are merry and bright for all of our junior Mountaineers!

For the fifth year in a row, CISGC is hosting an Angel Tree Event. Individuals, families, or businesses have the opportunity to sponsor one or more Greenbrier County student in an effort to make sure that every child in our community has a present to open on Christmas morning. 

Sponsoring is easy. Simply visit the “Angel Tree” set up at one of CISGC’s conveniently located partner locations, and select one or more Angel ornaments from the tree. (Please pay special attention to children with siblings). CISGC partner locations include Rainelle Medical Center, Greenbrier Valley Medical Center, and the Wild Bean. 

After you have finished shopping for your Angel, place all gifts in bags, and write the corresponding number (found on each Angel ornament) on the inside of the bag. You may include tissue paper in the bags if you would like, but please do not wrap gifts. All gifts must be returned to partner locations, or to the CISGC offices – located at 1033 Court Street in Lewisburg – by Tuesday, December 5. 

This project doesn’t just supplement Christmas. For most, the gifts which you provide may be the only gifts that they receive. Monetary donations  are welcome as well. For more information, call 304-661-1018, or email
