First State Bank of Rice located in Italy, Texas, put up their “Angel Tree” in the lobby today and are ready for you to come by and pick an “Angel” off their tree.
The bank will be open from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday thru Thursday and Friday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (lobby only). Unwrapped gifts need to be returned to the bank by December 17th.
There are approximately thirty angels that need to be adopted. If you would like to give a monetary donation instead of buying gifts, donations can be made to the Ellis County Protective Service Board at: 208 YMCA Drive Waxahachie, TX 75165.
Mike Boyd with First State Bank of Rice said, "We are just happy to help the community and the kids of Ellis County. We hope that everyone will have a wonderful Christmas and hope the “Angel Tree” can help make a difference in someone’s Christmas. Merry Christmas."
