The Door County YMCA made Christmas a brighter and merrier one for 118 children in the area. In December, the YMCA sponsored the second annual Angel Tree. CEO and President Tom Beerntsen says the program is a perfect complement to the year-ending annual campaign.
Over 100 individuals selected ornaments from angel trees placed in the Northern Door and Sturgeon Bay program centers. Each of the ornaments listed the age, gender, and a gift wish-list for a child in the community. Each person who donated returned a wrapped and ready gift that was placed under Christmas trees in the homes of local families.
