NPCC student organizations host Angel Trees
NPCC’s STEM Club, The Light Company and Alpha Beta Theta, the college’s chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, are hosting Angel Trees to help children in need.
It’s part of a campaign by The Salvation Army of North Platte to provide gifts to the less fortunate during the holidays. Trees are located outside the welcome centers on the college’s north and south campuses.
Each tree is decorated with paper ornaments including basic information about the children as well as gifts they wish to receive.
People are encouraged to take an ornament, purchase a gift listed on the tag and then return the unwrapped item in a bag, with the tag attached, by Dec. 12 to the welcome centers.
Gifts can also be dropped off at The Salvation Army, with math and physics instructor Jared Daily, in Room 217 of the Health and Science Center, or with history instructor Dr. Glynn Wolar in Room 145A of the McDonald-Belton Building.
Salvation Army volunteers will wrap the presents and distribute them to the children.
