Brighten a day, brighten a life


Here's your chance to brighten someone's Christmas. Thanks to some help from Trail Life USA Troop 0146, you can give a gift to benefit someone at the La Casa domestic violence emergency shelter program.

Instead of a tag on a public Christmas tree, giving you information on a local person in need of gift this season, Trail Life is making virtual tags available. The tags will help someone at La Casa.

You will get a description of the person, and their needs. You get the gift, take it to the drop site at Calvary Chapel, and Trail Life takes care of the gift wrapping and getting it into the right hands. Deadline to get a tag is Dec. 8, and deadline for delivery is Dec. 12.

To get a tag, or for more information, send a message to the Trail Life USA team at their Facebook page,
