"Volunteers are invited to join our ranks and assist our staff with the Angel Tree Program, as well as our other seasonal efforts.

Additionally, volunteers may fill stockings with everyday essentials for seniors or fill backpacks for local homeless. Changing a life is as easy as ringing a bell or stuffing a stocking or backpack," officials said.
