Pennies pitch in for Angels
St. Croix Central first-graders raised $731.17 this year during their annual penny drive to benefit the Holiday Angels. There are six sections of classes.
The Holiday Angels group, formerly known as Toys for Children, collects funds and gift donations for families in need who live in the St. Croix Central School District.
Donation drop boxes have been put out in Roberts at Citizens State Bank, Hazel Mackin Community Library and the Village Hall/Police Station; and in Hammond at Associated Bank, the Community Library, Village Hall/Police Station and St. Croix Central High School Store.
Donations of new, unwrapped toys, clothes and other gifts can be dropped off at those locations until Dec. 10. Monetary donations by check (made out to the Roberts Lions Foundation) may be mailed or given to Committee Chairperson Sandy Goulette.
If you or someone you know living in the St. Croix Central School District could benefit from this program, call Goulette at 749-3542 by Dec. 10.
