Emma Brooks– Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Thursday was the last day that the LRHS Student Government Association (SGA) collected donations for the Angel Tree fundraiser.
Students were given a card that listed items the child needs and an item that the child wants.
“I think that the Angel Tree program is really great, it allows under privileged kids to experience a traditional Christmas that they wouldn’t receive otherwise,” said SGA member junior Anna Shelby Dees.
After being collected, the donations will be given to the Salvation Army and distributed to the families throughout the holiday season.
“It was really eye opening to participate in the Angel Tree donation program, these kids don’t have a lot and I’m glad to know they will receive something special this year,” said junior Josie Curtis.
