Johnston County Visitors Bureau Announces Angel Tree Partnership
A Message from the Johnston County Visitors Bureau --
Christmas is right around the corner and we are excited to announce that we will be supporting the Angel Tree Project again this year which is organized by the Johnston County Department of Social Services. Each year the Angel Tree helps to provide Christmas gifts to children in the foster care system (150+), participants in the Adolescent Parenting Program (80+), as well as families who contact them requesting help due to financial need.
Follow this link to see a list of items for children in need this Christmas. Please email or give us a call at 919-989-8687 to let us know which child or items you would like to cover and we will put your name next to them on the list.
Angel Tree items may be dropped off at the JCVB office no later than December 7th.
Due to COVID-19 we will not be hosting our annual reception.
You may begin to drop off Angel Tree items. Our offices are currently closed to visitors but a staff member will be there Monday-Friday 8am-5pm, please knock on the door or call our office number. Masks must be worn while in the building. Due to COVID-19, there may be limited staff in the office during lunch hours.
If anyone would rather donate by giving a check it can be made out to “Johnston County Department of Social Services” with “Angel Tree Project” on the memo line. DSS will use these funds to purchase any gifts that were not donated and be sure that each child receives something for Christmas.
PLEASE LEAVE ALL GIFTS UNWRAPPED OR IN A GIFT BAG AND VISIBLY INCLUDE THE CHILD’S NUMBER.
Thanks for helping spread some Christmas joy!
