The Colby Community College Campus Bookstore is seeking assistance for this year’s Angel Tree project.  Approximately 90 residents who live at the Prairie Senior Living Complex and Colby Health and Rehab are the beneficiaries.

The angel tree is in the Campus Bookstore, located in the Robert Burnett Student Union. The bookstore will provide gift ideas and additional information once an angel is selected from the tree. A $20 to $25 limit for each gift is suggested.

"Sometimes residents of nursing facilities have few family or friends available to bring them holiday cheer,” said bookstore manager Leisa Hansen. “So we are sharing the spirit of the season at both local care centers."

Participants will be provided a gift bag to fill and return to the bookstore by Thursday, Dec. 13. Representatives from the CCC Student Government Association will deliver the gifts.

For more information, contact Hansen at 460-5500.
