A lot of appointments have been booked and gifts are now being picked up until December 24th in a Christmas gift program. The program allows parents to give their children a gift at Christmas when circumstances prevent them from doing so. The Friendship Center’s Events Coordinator Jeremiah Herrmann says donations have been going well and appointments are filling up with people coming in starting today to pick out a gift for their child. He says he’s going to be accepting registrations throughout the whole program so in the event that you don’t get registered you can come in on the 24th when they’re open until 3 o’clock and you might have to wait for a couple of minutes but they will try to get to you so you can have a gift under the tree.
Gifts can still be donated at the Friendship Center until the 24th. This is the 22nd year for the gift program.
