Annual Adopt an Angel program trees have gone up

Ornaments on the trees for the Adopt an Angel program each represent a child in Summit County that people can buy a gift for. Gifts must be brought in to either Family and Intercultural Resource Center or county police and fire stations by Dec. 9 at 5 p.m.

Trees for the 22nd annual Adopt an Angel program can now be found throughout Summit County. Residents can shop for children that are represented on ornaments. Donations can be brought to either of the Family and Intercultural Resource Center offices, or police and fire stations throughout the county. Donations must be brought in by 5 p.m. on Dec. 9.

The Adopt an Angel event will be held in the Silverthorne Pavilion on Dec. 14, where presents will be given to more than 600 children who are participating in the program this year.

Adopt an Angel was started in 1994 by the Silverthorne Police Department. This year, FIRC took over management of the program due the increasing number of children and families the program has reached.
