Division of Marine Fisheries staff continues tradition of adopting Christmas angels

Twas the week before Christmas and all through the building,

Staff were all aflutter with gifts for the children.

While they always work hard to save the fishes,

They were also shopping to fill angels’ wishes.

Staff at the Division of Marine Fisheries bought gifts for 18 angels, adopted this year through Project Christmas Cheer.

The presents ranged from clothes and diapers to bicycles, toys and video games.

In addition, employees cleaned out their closets and donated gently used clothing and household supplies to two of the children’s families. 

2015 marked the 28th year Division of Marine Fisheries staff adopted angels through Project Christmas Cheer. The 18 this year brings the total number of angels to 190 adopted over the course of the years.

This year, 34 employees participated, donating $2,781 of their own money and volunteering time to shop for, wrap and deliver gifts.

Project Christmas Cheer is an outreach service to residents of Carteret County who are experiencing financial need at Christmastime. Families apply for assistance, and after meeting the criteria, their names and information are written on paper angels that are placed on trees for individuals, businesses and churches to adopt.
