A BIG thank you to AG Plus! They made a donation to our program that allows our department to take children in need shopping during the Christmas Holiday Season. We are able to help a limited amount of families with this program. The children are able to get needs ( such as clothing, shoes, coats, etc.) as well as a few toys if they wish. AG Plus's donation will help make at least two children's Holiday Season a little brighter!
