The Brownwood-Brown County Child Welfare Board along with Child Protective Services are sponsoring Giving Trees for children placed by CPS with relatives.

The trees are placed in the lobby of Community Connections of Central Texas (formerly the Family Services Center) at 901 Ave. B.

The public is encouraged to go there and pluck and ornament from a tree, take it to the receptionist and receive a list of the child’s wants and needs.

Packages are to be returned to the location by Dec. 13.

There are 87 ornaments on the tree waiting for people to help with a merry Christmas for these children.

It is requested that no more than four items are given to each child.

Gifts may be wrapped or not and labeled with the child’s number.
