 HCC Early Childhood Club Brings Christmas Joy to County Children

Each year, the HCC Early Childhood Club receives names of children in need from Children's Developmental Services Agency, a state agency that serves children in Halifax and Northampton counties with developmental disabilities. The club then creates an Angel Tree, cutting out five angels for each child, writing the necessary information with a gift suggestion on each angel, and putting the tree up before the Thanksgiving holiday. The club uses its money to make up the difference for any children whose angels were left on the tree. This year, there were 40 children represented on the tree, ranging in ages from two months to16 years. Above, students in the club put the finishing touches on the children’s gifts.
