WINTHROP, Minn. (KEYC) — The ‘Amy Angels’ program is helping provide gifts to children in need across the state.
The program, named after a late active group member, encourages families to fill out an application for a child in need of a holiday gift.
Then, community members can “adopt” a child to send gifts to.
Each child receives a three gift minimum.
“I put them on the list by age and give them an angel number. Then I post them on my group. Basically, we have a long list and people can choose a child they want to sponsor,” explained program creator Laura Pulley.
Gifts can be mailed to the adopted children or sent to Pulley, who then wraps and delivers them. So far, 100 children have already been sponsored to receive gifts this year.
The program is part of the group “Helping Hearts of Minnesota” that Pulley began a few years ago, to help those receive basic essentials.
