Positive Pahrump has partnered with the Nye County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO) and The Pahrump Disability Outreach Program (PDOP) to provide the 8th annual Angel Tree and Toy Drive.
Positive Pahrump run by local resident Stephanie Lopez has been doing the Pahrump Angel Tree program and subsequent toy drive now for eight years. This year the hope is to make these programs even more of a success partnering with local organizations.
The Angel Tree program provides toys for children in Pahrump who otherwise would not have a Christmas. Families that need support for their children add their names to the Angel Tree wish list. Those wishes are placed on Angel Trees throughout the Nye County School District and people take the wish, fulfill it and return the gift. They are all packaged and provided to those families just before Christmas.
The Toy Drive will be held on December 15th and will be just like a Santa Shop at a location and time that will be announced as the event progresses. Parents of children in need will come to the toy drive and pick up presents to make their children’s Christmas a success. You will not be eligible to be a participant in the toy drive if you are receiving Christmas gift assistance from any other programs.
Should you wish to have your child participate in the Positive Pahrump Angel Tree Project, please go to your local elementary school and complete the form and have your child return it discretely to his/her teacher NO LATER THAN November 20th. The information you provide, EXCEPT for your child’s name, will be placed on an angel and hung on the tree in the main office. Please understand that there is a chance your child will receive only 1 of the 3 gifts listed or he/she may receive all 3 – this depends on the person who selects your child. We will then distribute the gifts on December 13. We ask that you be available to come to your school to pick up the gifts on December 14th. Please remember that the last day of school before the winter break is DECEMBER 15th.
