YMCA of the Capital Area’s 12th annual Angel Tree Giving Program is underway.

Community members can select an angel tag from the YMCA Christmas tree that lists a child’s gender, age and requested gift to open on Christmas morning.

Unwrapped gifts should be dropped off by Dec. 18 to the front desk of any YMCA of the Capital Area for distribution to families in time for Christmas morning.

Donations also will be accepted for the YMCA Annual Community Support Campaign, a fund used to provide scholarships to children, families, adults and seniors who need YMCA programs but are unable to afford them.

For information, call Kristen Hogan at (225) 923-0653, ext. 1104, or visit ymcabr.org.
