Angel Tree Tradition
Home State Bank is again this year supporting our
wonderful Louisville Jaycees and the 2006 Angel Tree
For those of you who have not made this one of your families holiday traditions it really is a great way to teach kids about sharing with others.
At the bank there is a tree with paper "angels" hanging on the branches, they have names of kids that could use some special kindness this year to keep their spirits bright. Each angel has a simple gift request, that you purchase and leave under the tree at the bank.
Our own Jaycees angels will see to it that it is anonymously delivered.
We built this way for you to share with the BUILD group, (our Local Business Owners), your ideas, observations and suggestions to help improve Louisville. Your comments are now shared at the Monthly BUILD meeting, and your ideas are valuable!
