Glenda Sherman, Program Support Specialist for Macon Program for Progress and Holiday Angels coordinator, explained how the Holiday Angels program worked at the Franklin Kiwanis meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 3.
Individuals, businesses, clubs, and organizations sign up to sponsor a family. Sponsors can select the type of family they would like to help. The sponsor is provided with the ages, genders, and sizes of the family members.
In addition, the sponsor is given a list of specific items that each of the family members is wishing for. Holiday Angels coordinates with other local Christmas programs like "Toys for Tots" and "Shop with a Cop," and with the Macon County Deptment of Social Services to assure that donations are fairly distributed.
