WESTFIELD — The Westfield Area Y, located at 220 Clark Street in Westfield, is hosting its annual Angel Tree. Caring members of the Y are selecting an angel between now and Dec. 23 to spread holiday cheer and help a community member in need this season.

The “Angel Tree” provides local children in need with gifts and necessities at holiday time. “Our members’ annual acts of kindness are truly making a difference and touching the lives of local children within our community,” said Janice A. Carthens, Westfield Area Y Senior Director Member Services & Quality Assurance.

Each angel on the Tree represents a Christmas wish from a youth or family. In the past, over 175 wrapped gifts were collected and dropped off as well as financial donations were made to the Y’s Strong Kids Campaign to help children attend camp this summer. All wrapped gifts are delivered to the Plainfield Area YMCA and to families in various Y Child Care programs.
