Angel Program 2009

The Clarke County DFCS Angel Project of 2009 is still in need of sponsors to buy gifts for our children in foster care and children that we are working closely in the community with. If you are interested in sponsoring a child/ren this Holiday season please contact Stephanie Higdon, Angel Project Coordinator, at smhigdon@dhr.state.ga us or 706-621-3657.

Thanks so much to all of you who helped out last year as I know many, many of the faculty and staff at UGA were our biggest supporters. We do know times are tight for everyone right now and really appreciate any help you can offer. If you are unable to purchase gifs, monetary or gift card donations can also be sent to Clarke County DFCS, P.O. Box 1887, Athens, GA 30601 Attn: Angel Project/Rhonda Floyd. Please note on all checks that you are designating that money for the 'Christmas Angel Project'.

Thanks so much!
