Avera Dells Area Health Center has an “Angel Tree” located by the hospital nurses station and the clinic front lobby in Dell Rapids. On the Christmas tree are angel ornaments listing items that children in need, in the Dell Rapids community, have requested for Christmas. A collection box will be located at the hospital nurses station or behind the clinic front desk (in the hospital business office) to place donated items. All new donated items are accepted. It is not necessary for the item donated to be listed on the “Angel Tree”. The local ESA chapter picks up the items periodically throughout the month of December. Items are gladly taken for donation until December 18th. This will allow time for the local ESA chapter to sort and deliver the Christmas gifts to those in need appropriately before Christmas through the “Christmas For Our Kids” program.
