The Yamaska Valley Optimist Club, as it has for many years, is working to “Bring out the Best in Kids” with its Angel program. By working with local schools and community outreach programs, it is hoping to give gifts to 220 recipients.

Angels can be picked up as of November 9 at the following locations:

In Knowlton:

• Home Hardware
• La Vie Sucrée
• De La Ferme à la Table

• Dépanneur Rouge

In Sutton:
• Pharmacie Brunet

In Cowansville:
• Nettoyeur Houle
• Giant Tiger

All the angels have the following information to help with the choice of an appropriate gift: age, gender, interests and clothing sizes. The gift-givers then purchase a gift of their choice, wrap it, replace the paper angel on the gift and return it to the place it was obtained at by December 9.

These gifts will then be distributed to the lucky recipients by members of the Yamaska Valley Optimist Club. For further information, please call Susan Burbank at: 450-243-0530.
