The Christmas season is here and the Eastern Plumas Angel Program is underway. The trees and wreaths have been placed with pink and blue angels for community members to take. The angels can be found at the Graeagle Market, Mohawk Community Resource Center, Leonard’s Market, Plumas Bank, Feather River Co-op, and 7-11. Gifts purchased for needy children must be new and unwrapped and delivered to Plumas Bank and/or Plumas Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative by Dec. 9.
Community members who need help can fill out the form sent to all P.O. Boxes from the Sheriff’s Office. Extra forms are available at the Portola Family Resource Center, C. Roy Carmichael School, the Portola Food Bank, and Portola High School. Families are asked to fill the forms out neatly so they can be read and purchases can be made. All families will be called to tell them where and when to pick up the gifts and the food basket. Gifts will be at the Father Burns Hall at the Catholic Church in Portola and the food baskets will be at the Portola Food Bank. Questions can be directed to 530-836-0555.
