Sheriff's association continues to provide for needy children The Plumas County Sheriffs Employees Association will again offer its Needy Chil- dren's Christmas Program -- but with some changes. "There have been quite a few changes this year," said orga- nizer Becky Grant, "some that we did not expect and some that we did." The biggest change, said Grant, is that Rite Aid Corpo- ration is not allowing the Quincy store to host an angel tree this year, "for reasons be- yond the local level." Instead, the association will put its an- gel tree up at American Valley Hardware (next to Rite Aid). "We greatly appreciate both stores in helping with this as it is the main source of toys re- ceived for the Christmas pro- gram," said Grant. Angel trees provide paper "angels" listing pertinent in- formation about needy chil- dren. Donors choose an angel, then purchase gifts for that child arid deliver them to the throughout the county. "The Sheriffs Employees As- sociation has also taken on the entire east end of the county as Fran Roudebush and Project Santa have retired. We are now working with a nice group of volunteers who wish to ensure the children on this end of the county are not left behind. "But with that the need for toys is also higher and we ask anyone that can to please visit the angel tree or drop off an unwrapped toy." In the Quincy area, toys can be dropped off at American Valley Hardware or the sher- iris office. Requests to sign up for assistance can be filled out at the sheriffs office. "In the past," said Grant, "we were somewhat lax with the restrictions as there were always enough toys. We feel this year may be different if the {oy drive is not as success- ful as we hope." The association is also con- tinuing its relationship with sign up for a food basket.
