The Oaks Health Care Center of Poteau, Oklahoma, is holding their annual Angel Tree. They have around 104 residents in the facility. The Angel Tree will be put up by the 8th of December which is also the same day as their holiday dinner. Anyone can call ahead and reserve an angel.

 

The Angel Tree drive is an opportunity for anyone in the community to give a gift to an Oaks resident in need. Any member from the community can take an angel from the tree, the angels are the names of the residents at the Oaks. An angel represents a resident at the facility. The residents tell the activities staff suggestions what they would like for Christmas. Then anyone in the community can go to the Oaks, take an angel off the tree, and meet the resident.

 

The gifts for the residents are advised to be retuned by the 17th of December.

 

Gift suggestions are as follows:

Bed sets (Sizes Twin and Full.)

Blankets

Clothes for both female and male (Sizes Small-6X.)

And any other donations of similar items.

 

Many residents will be glad to be receiving gifts from the community.
