According to Melody Walters, with the Childrens’ Christmas Trees campaign, 139 children are stil awaiting adoption at area banks.
Walters said the deadline for the drive is 2 p.m. Tuesday. Those wishing to purchase a gift for one of the children may go to any Jacksonville bank to adopt a child. The child’s information will be on a card, and once a gift is purchased, it may be brought back to the bank (wrapped or unwrapped), Walters said.
Area firefighters will go by the banks in Jacksonville on Tuesday to pick up the donated gifts for distribution.
