The Meade County Angel Ministry will move into their “North Pole” location during mid-November. We are so very grateful to Communicare for providing this space at no cost to the ministry. There is a gradual rise in activity as we move towards the gift return deadline of December 5. North Pole is a magically busy place where we receive gifts and double check our lists for over 1100 Meade County Angels. The spirit of giving is alive and well in Meade County and The Angel Ministry would love to invite the Chamber Members to share in the magic of the season. They are asking for your help to staff the reception area during the week leading up to the gift return deadline. Give yourself or your team a blessing this year and be a part of the Angel Ministry! Can’t let the staff go for the day…no problem, let them go for an hour and rotate throughout the day!
