For most little boys and girls, now is the time of year for dreaming about the surprises they might find under their tree on Christmas morning. For parents in tight financial situations, it's the time of year they wish they could make all their children's holiday dreams come true.
You can help by donating new, unwrapped toys to the City of St. Catharines' 18th annual Tree of Little Angels campaign, which supports Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold. Residents donated more than 500 toys to Community Care through the City's Little Angels campaign last year.
Find "Little Angels" on trees at various City facilities, such as City Hall, the St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre and other City recreation and community centres, purchase a gift for that child and return it with the angel attached to City facilities.
Toys are due by Dec. 12
