Gifts Needed in Mountain View!

The deadline has passed and many applications for assistance with Christmas gifts have been accepted at the Stone County Department of Human Services in Mountain View.  The trees are ready to decorate with the names of Stone County children looking for a Merry Christmas and we need your help to provide gifts for the children.

Trees will be decorated at local banks and businesses the Friday following Thanksgiving, with gift tags noting the child’s name, gift wish and clothing size.  Names will be selected from the tree by those wishing to participate, and the gifts returned to the bank.  Price range will be $20.00 for the gift.  Gifts will be distributed through the Department of Human Service office December 18th.

Trees will be decorated and names of children available at the following locations; Centennial Bank, Citizens Bank, First National Bank of Izard County, First Security Bank, First Service Bank and Ozark Heritage Bank and the Dollar General Store.

The community of Mountain View and Stone County are truly amazing with their generosity and giving spirit.  From a barbeque benefiting the Angel Tree Program at T D Builders, Free tickets to Cash’s White River Hoe Down Christmas shows, two nights of music programs at Taylor’s Sons of the Ozarks Theater,  with all donation received dedicated to the children’s Christmas Program.  Donations from churches, individuals, businesses and organizations are also received including caps and mittens, cash, gifts and volunteer efforts.
