Teen aims to help the less fortunate

Virtual Angel Tree proves challenging

 

Last updated 12/9/2020 at 9:21am

A local high school honor student is spearheading an Angel Tree project to provide gifts for children and senior citizens. Despite the challenges of having to do it "virtually," she hopes the community will step up to help.

Kiara Grant is a student at Fountain-Fort Carson High School and a member of the National Honor Society. She recently started an Angel Tree project for her school. An Angel Tree is a Christmas tree decorated with tags listing the wanted items of specific people in need, and anyone can choose certain gifts and buy them anonymously.

"I have signed up to support 150 less fortunate people, including children and seniors," Grant said. "I have had 31 people from my school want to participate, but my deadline is Dec. 15."

Because her school is currently on remote learning, she is having to conduct the project virtually instead of being able to have people view the tree and tags in person. Anyone interested in adopting a tag should email her at [email protected] to indicate which gifts will be purchased and to arrange a drop-off or pick-up.

A sampling of potential recipients' ages and wish lists includes:

Girl, 2 years, My First Crayola Double Doodle Board, Mermaid Blanket.

Boy, 5 years, Blue Winter Jacket, Blue Shoes.

Girl, 11 years, Paracord Bracelet Kit, Crystal Growing Experiment.

Boy, 12 years, Nerf Gun, Wordplay for Kids Board Game.

Female, Senior, Tea Pot and Tea Cups.

Male, Senior, Flannel Pajamas.

The list is included in text form below. You can also view the full list (updated as of Dec. 7) at https://www.epcan.com/home/customer_files/pdfs/list_for_angel_tree.pdf

Time is of the essence to fulfill the wishes of everyone on the list. Email [email protected] to indicate which gift you plan to purchase and to arrange pick-up.

"I really want to help out less fortunate people in the community, and I am hoping to be able to support every child and senior," Grant said.
