This week, Angels in the Attic was able to clothe six families who didn’t have warm winter clothes.

AngelsWhile it might seem like a small accomplishment, the truth is those six homes did not have the resources to provide clothes for themselves.

The clothes given to the families came from donations to Angels in the Attic. “The clothing keeps coming in,” said case manager Ivy Beals. “The community supports this. They overwhelmingly support (us). We have more clothes that we can begin to go through and sell.”

There is so much donated clothing available already that there still are piles that have been sorted, but have not come upstairs to be sold yet.

It was through this same support that most of the angel tree recipients have been taken care of, but Beals made a point to mention that anyone who did not beat the deadline to sign up for this service still can call Angels in the Attic at (620) 442-5272.

There will be another opportunity to receive gifts before Christmas. The organization has every intention of helping as many families as possible, she said. However, any family that needs help must call before Dec. 19 to be included.

Beals also said commodities will be passed out on Dec. 15. In order to receive this service, people must provide the following:

  • current photo identification;
  • proof of address;
  • proof of income.

Commodities will be passed out from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Angels in the Attic, located at 109 S. Summit St.

Angels in the Attic still is in need of donations of wrapping paper and dish rags.

If you or someone you know is in need this season, Angels in the Attic is available to help. Beals can be contacted at (620) 442-5272.
