The Christmas tree is up at the Anderson County Courthouse, and local citizens, civic groups, church groups, and business leaders are invited to stop by and select a child’s name off the tree to provide Christmas for that child this year.
“In coordination with the Anderson County Schools, we’ve been providing an “Angel” tree for the last few years,” said Leean Tupper, administrative assistant to Anderson County Mayor Terry Frank.
“We work with school counselors to place students’ names on the tree, along with their wish lists for Christmas gifts. It seems to be very popular, with both county employees and citizens reaching out to me weeks in advance of the holiday season to ask if we are putting up the Angel Tree each year.”
“Anderson County is such a generous place – and we in the courthouse look forward to partnering with our schools each year to make Christmas a little brighter for these boys and girls,” Mayor Terry Frank said.
