The 2015 Tag-A-Gift program kicked off Monday, November 23, with the decorating of a tree in the lobby of Edmond Town Hall.
Tag-A-Gift is a collaboration of the Newtown Junior Women’s Club (NWJC) and Golden Opportunities to provide holiday gifts for less fortunate children and senior citizens in town. NJWC coordinates the collection and wrapping of holiday gifts for children, and this year for elderly residents, too, as part of the larger Holiday Basket drive led by The Newtown Fund.

The Newtown Fund has for many years helped Newtown’s residents in need around the December holidays. Most referrals come through the town’s Social Service Department or local clergy. Families, couples, and individuals — who are referred to The Fund by Newtown Social Services — receive emergency donations throughout the year but the holiday season is the time when the fund, and residents, provide the most help to make their holiday and their lives brighter.

Saturday, December 14, will be Depot Day this year and organizers are hoping that families, organizations and other groups will choose to do something positive for the community on that solemn anniversary.
