The “angels” have flown in: From the Orange County Department of Social Services, from St. Simon Stock, a sister Carmelite parish in the Bronx, and from Access Supports for Living, which works with struggling families.

And now is the time to choose your child or family. As was done last year, rather than taking a tag off the Giving Tree, all you need do is reach out to EITHER Therese Quinn (845-313-0256; OR Mary McCabe (914-420-0842; NOT BOTH! You will be given all the information needed to find Christmas gifts that are sure to please.

Wrapped gifts identified with the angel number must be returned to Deacon John Hall no later than December 18.
