Christmas Gifts for Less Fortunate Still Needed

The Angel Tree at Tutu Park Mall at the entrance near Subway still has names that haven't been selected. They had so many names so they've had to replenish the tree several times. Some people are only asking for simple things like shampoo and socks, all of which are affordable at KMart.

Please consider giving to those less fortunate.

Thanks, and happy holidays to you and yours!

Volunteers Of The Virgin Islands Inc. is the charity collecting the gifts.
I would call Pat and ask her if it can be done Christmas Eve. (998-9479 cell #)
You buy what is on the card and drop off the gifts right there across from the tree at the ladies clothing store. I think the name is Essence Boutique.
The directions are right there on the the tree.

Yes, they will be collecting Christmas eve. I'm trying to see if they can make it permanent. You should see the number.of requests for a fan, and those aren't plentiful or on sale during Christmas.

The best sale I see for a stand-up fan is on Thanksgiving. $16.99. I've never seen them on sale for any lower.
Also, a lot of requests from the senior citizens were bed pillows and towels. Socks too.

They've taken.the tree down already. Lots of names were still on it. I guess they're trying to get everything distributed before tomorrow.

Anyone know what to do now? I have gifts wrapped in my trunk, the lady isn't answering her cell, BM is full and essence boutique wouldn't take them...

They'll be distributing again later. I went with them to the Seniors' home. Did you buy adult or kids'?

Take them to the Family Resource Center in town. Do you know where that is?
