Bless local families this season through Rockwall YMCA’s Angel Tree

(ROCKWALL, TX – Nov. 20, 2019) The JER Chilton YMCA at Rockwall encourages community members to help a family in need this Christmas by stopping by the Y’s Welcome Center to choose an ornament from their Angel Tree.

The tree will go up on Thursday, Nov. 21, with more than 100 ornaments – each representing a local child, age 18 or younger, whose family has an active Y membership, requires financial assistance, and needs help this holiday season. The ornaments list the child’s age along with one need and one wish they have this Christmas.

“With your help, we’d like to make the season a little brighter for these local Y families,” said Lorna Feldhousen, Annual Campaign Coordinator for the JER Chilton YMCA.

To participate:

  • Choose an ornament from the tree.
  • Take your ornament to the Welcome Center staff and sign out with your name, phone number and email address.
  • Return your gifts to the YMCA no later than December 12.

The JER Chilton YMCA is located at 1210 N. Goliad. For more information, call 972-772-9622.
