The 22nd Annual DeKalb County Angel Tree Project is currently underway. The Angel Tree provides Christmas gifts for underserved and needy children in DeKalb County. You can pick up your Angel at any local bank in Smithville or Alexandria. There are 368 children representing 175 local families. The adoption tags have suggested wish items but it is not necessary to purchase everything listed. Donations can also be made at any bank branch if you would prefer to have someone do the shopping for you. It is always our goal to have each child adopted but for those who are not, we will do the shopping for them. The deadline to return your gifts is Friday, December 8th, The continued support of the community is what makes this such a successful program.
