Mayville, ND — Dozens of families and elderly in need in Traill County will any day now be getting a little boost courtesy of the Traill County Community Giving Project. Their annual Angel Tree was conducted a little differently this year, however, due to the pandemic. In a typical year, various agencies in Traill County would have “angels” on trees for people to come in and shop for during the holiday season. This year, Michelle Bye of the Traill County Community Giving Project says they were still able to provide some assistance but had to improvise to eliminate contact and spread.

It was especially important for the Angel Tree program to continue this year. Bye states that pandemic has amplified the need for assistance in the community.

And while the Angel Tree program is being conducted much differently this year, Bye firmly believes the children, families, elderly, and disabled that benefit the program will appreciate the help.

According to Bye, 37 families with children and 40 elderly and disabled individuals will be receiving gifts cards to help them this Christmas season, courtesy of the Traill County Community Giving Project.
