The ATOD Coalition of Lawrence County was able to help 20 angels this year on the angel tree. Last Sunday ATOD members Lauren Dotson, Angel Burton, Heaven Beasley, Haley Chappell, Debbie Burton, and Glenda Nelson wrapped packages  for the gifts that will be distributed to provide new clothing and/or toys for children on the angel tree.

ATOD members raised the funds used through donations and various projects throughout the year including their fall festival held in October.

ATOD youth leader Debbie Burton stated that next year they hope to be able to help even more angels for Christmas.
