Trinidad Angel Tree PDF Print E-mail
The City is asking for the help of our community during this holiday season to adopt a child or two from our Trinidad Angel Tree. There will be a Trinidad Angel Tree in the lobby of the City Hall with angels on it for people to choose a Trinidad child. There will be nothing on the Angels other than your child's first name, age, male or female and what their interests are. It will give individuals an opportunity to adopt less fortunate children who would otherwise receive very little or nothing during the holiday season and provides them with personalized gifts and necessities. Our goal is to make sure every child is adopted from our Trinidad Angel Tree.

If you would like to sign your child(ren) up for this program (ages newborn to 10 years old) and you are in need of some help at Christmas for your children, please visit the Trinidad City Hall Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to noon or 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. to fill out an application. We are hoping to have as many kids signed up before the Black Friday shopping weekend, because we have noticed in the past that a lot of the people that are adopting the children like to have the child's information by that weekend.

If you have any questions please call the City of Trinidad at 903-778-2525 or our Housing Authority office 903-778-2584. Cut off date to submit an application is December 9, 2016 by 5:00 p.m.

I am confident with the support from our generous community we can make some children very happy this Christmas Season!
