At Safe Haven Wellness and Recovery Center, there is a Christmas tree decorated with paper angels, each of which have a specific item written on them.
“On each angel represents an everyday item that someone might not normally think to donate, but are crucial to our daily operation,” said Valerie Sterling, peer support specialist.
About five years ago, Sterling introduced the Angel Tree as part of a fundraiser for the non-profit organization.
“If an individual is interested in donating to safe haven, but doesn’t necessarily want to donate money, can take an angel from the tree and returning the item listed,” said Sterling.
Items include coffee, dry goods, cleaning supplies, cold cuts, and more.
“We appreciate all of the donations we’ve received over the years and hope that our community will continue its generosity,” said Sterling.
To participate in Safe Haven’s Angel Tree, stop by their office at 411 Main Street in Colusa, Monday through Saturday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
