“PICKENS COUNTY, S.C. —
Feed and Seed and the Salvation Army of Pickens County are working together to help those in need this holiday season.
The Salvation Army of Pickens County is getting ready to distribute gifts for its Angel Tree Program later this month.
Autumn Shearin, service center director for Pickens County, said the organization is providing gifts for more than 340 kids this year.
“I think it’s most important because they’re kids, they’re children and part of the Angel Tree process is to make sure that they still have magic for Christmas, and they don’t have stress or worry during these times and that families don’t have worries,” said Shearin. “It’s hard to believe that a mother and a father would have to think about ‘what can we do to get gifts? What can we give up?’ And a lot of times, that’s what they do. They give up food, they give up medical bills. The parents go without so that they can give their children something wonderful for Christmas, and we want to make sure they don’t have to do that.”
