ADOPT AN ANGEL

Human Resources is sponsoring its annual Adopt an Angel Program, which provides holiday gifts for children of poverty-level families from the San Gabriel Valley area.

To adopt an Angel, go to the Human Resources office between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. to pick up a decorated paper angel bearing the name of a needy child, along with his or her special wish list, age, clothing size, and interests. Then leave an unwrapped gift for your Angel, with his or her name attached, in the Human Resources office by Friday, December 6.

The Angel Program is affiliated with the Foothill Unity Center, a nonprofit organization that provides critical support in the form of food, clothing, motel vouchers, referrals, and advocacy for people in crisis who reside in Pasadena, South Pasadena, Altadena, Monrovia, Arcadia, Sierra Madre, Bradbury, Baldwin Park, Irwindale and Azusa.
