Rick’s Angel Tree 2012

For the tenth year in a row, Rick’s Restaurant in Sneads Ferry has set up their “Angel Tree” for the 2012 Christmas season. The Angel Tree Project helps local, needy children have a wonderful Christmas! How it works: The Christmas tree is decorated with paper angels — each angel” represents a local child, displaying boy or girl and age. The children can use your help to have a merrier Christmas. Choose your angel from the tree and take it to the manager. You will be given the corresponding gift wishes, clothing size information and needs for your angel. Now, do your shopping! Before Friday, December 14, bring the wrapped gifts to Rick’s. The social workers at the Dixon Schools will arrange for the angels to get their gifts. It is a wonderful project and the community has always been very generous! The owners, managers and staff at Rick’s look forward to another very successful “Angel Tree” season! For more information, Call Rick’s at 327-2300 and ask to speak to Linda, Paul or Alice.
