Angel Tree returns at New Beacon Hospice

Posted

New Beacon Hospice in Jasper has once again filled an Angel Tree with the wishes of local adults.

Approximately 220 Angels were placed on the tree last week. The requests came from patients in local hospices and home health agencies as well as the Department of Human Resources adult protective services and the TriCounty Agency for Intellectual Disabilities.

New Beacon Hospice started the Angel Tree in 2014.

Supporters provided assistance to 80 individuals in the project’s inaugural year and over 100 individuals since 2015.

“They don't have anyone to provide the basic things they need. People who adopt the Angels are helping people that don't have anything or anybody or any means of getting help,” said LeAnn Shadinger, volunteer coordinator at New Beacon.

Common requests include warm clothing, snacks and bath and hygiene products.

The Angel Tree is set up in New Beacon’s office on North Airport Road. Some Angels are also available at Ladybugs Bakery and Deli in downtown Jasper.

Items should be returned in gift bags to the New Beacon office by Monday, Dec. 18.
