The Newbern Housing Authority and Resident Council is preparing to organize its annual Adopt-an-Angel program and Christmas party for the resident children. In the past few years, the organization has been fortunate in receiving assistance from churches, community organizations and industries in the area. They are again in need of the community's assistance to ensure the success of the 2012 Christmas party.
Donations are appreciated to assist in the sponsoring of one or more of the children. Currently there are approximately 130 children in the Newbern area, ages ranging from newborn to 18 years. There are several ways in which you can help:
1. Adopt one or more of the children by contacting the office (731) 627-2142 and obtaining a child's name and age, then purchasing a gift for approximately $10.
2. Donate $10 to cover the cost of adopting a child and a gift will be purchased for you. Donations may be mailed to:
Newbern Housing Adopt-An-Angel Program
PO Box 100
Newbern, TN 38059
3. Donate candy, fruit, pencils, coupons or other items to fill a Christmas sack for each child.
4. Donate refreshments to be served at the Christmas party.
5. Gifts and/or donations must be submitted no later than Dec. 7, 2012.
