Humboldt County Ministerial Association has placed an Angel Tree at the Tree Walk at Faith United Methodist Church for children 18 and under. It is the only location for an Angel Tree this holiday season.
People can pick an angel, purchase and wrap the gift, and then attach the angel to the front of the package so it gets to the right child. The package should be returned to the Humboldt County Fairgrounds on Monday, Dec. 16, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
