Stanton angel tree helps district families

-- Contributed

Stanton Elementary School recently conducted its annual Angel Tree program and collected gift items for 78 children from 38 district families. Donations were made by individuals, families, organizations and local businesses with more items gathered during a toy drive at Edison High School. Organizer Susan LoPrete, a preschool teacher at Stanton, said the goal was to collect coats, clothing and several toys for infants through teens, and local support made it possible for the youth to have a Merry Christmas. Cathie Llewelyn and Kris Ferrero delivered contributions from the Pleasant Hill Volunteer Fire Department and its auxiliary.
