Windcrest sponsoring local families with Angel Tree program

Windcrest Angel Tree

Windcrest Elementary School is sponsoring Windcrest families for Angel Tree donations this year, Nov. 2 - Dec. 8. Angel trees have been placed at RBFCU (Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union), the Windcrest Golf Course and Windcrest Elementary School.

Windcrest community members, school families and Windcrest ES staff help sponsor and shop for gifts for each family for Christmas. The school also collects non-perishable items, and each family is provided a turkey from a community organization. The Windcrest Garden Club also assists with the project by purchasing coats for each sponsored student, as well as joining in the shopping day to finalize lists for each family.

"Without the support of the Windcrest school community, we could not provide all of the wonderful items for these families," said Jennifer Barton, principal at Windcrest. "The Angel Tree Project is a tradition at Windcrest ES and we always have fantastic support from our community members."
