The Colby Community College Campus Bookstore is seeking assistance for this year’s Angel Tree project. The "angels" consist of 57 residents at the Prairie Senior Living Center.

The Angel Tree is located in the food services area of the Student Union. The Campus 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. “We are hoping to fill that gap a bit this Christmas season."

Participants will be provided a gift bag to fill and return to the bookstore by Monday, Dec. 12. Representatives from the CCC Student Government Association will deliver the gifts.

For more information on the Angel Tree, contact Hansen at 460-5500.
