Christmas Wish List at ACC kicks off today

The Alpena Volunteer Center at Alpena Community College kicks off the annual Christmas Wish List today.

A holiday tradition for nearly 40 years, the Christmas Wish List includes hundreds of children’s specific gift request that are matched with generous donors who agree to fulfill them. Most gifts are for basic needs such as clothing household items and food.

Volunteer Center phones at 358-7271 are open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to4 p.m. to match donors with the wishes of a child.

Gifts must be received the week of Dec. 4-7. Cash donations to the Christmas Wish List also are needed to provide for purchase of unfilled gifts or food. Cash donations are welcome at any time.
