You can make a difference in the lives of children in CPS care by visiting one of these Angel Trees.

The holiday season is all about giving, and just like you, I can’t stand the thought of any child waking up on Christmas morning without a present to unwrap, which is why local Angel Trees are so important.

I serve on the Erath County Child Welfare Board and I can tell you that some of the stories we hear are absolutely heartbreaking.

There are several local kiddos currently in the care of Child Protective Services that could use a little extra love right now.

You can do your part to help by picking a child from one of the Child Welfare Board’s four Angel Trees.


There are now 19 children on the Angel Tree at The Home Place at Ace.

Three more Angel Trees will soon be up at Blue-Eyed Buffalo, Kannonball Insurance and Signature Equine Hospital in Morgan Mill.

Shop for the child, then bring new, unwrapped gifts back to the location where you chose the angel by Dec. 12.

The gifts will then be given to caseworkers and delivered to the families before Christmas.
