For another year, the generous parishioners of St. Mary of the Springs Catholic Church provided toys, clothes, and food boxes for families in need at the Hot Springs School District (HSSD) through the Angel Tree program. The Angel Tree effort was organized by a committee of Di Baker, Rosemary Hadlock, Jonne Roseau and, Phyllis Baltz. With their leadership and with the help of countless other church volunteers, items for more than 100 HSSD students (which included approximately 43 total families) were delivered, organized, and picked up by families from the HSSD Central Office this week.


Bundles for each child on the Angel Tree were carefully purchased and wrapped by kind members at St. Mary of the Springs Catholic Church, then grouped and delivered to the HSSD Central Office by volunteers for the Angel Tree program. In all, this church ensured that 170 children in the Garland and Clark County areas received bundles of toys, clothes, and food items, as they also work with  Our Lady Guadalupe Church of Glenwood to service families there.


The HSSD is a truly blessed district because of our wonderful community partners and Hot Springs residents. Thank you to all parishioners at St. Mary of the Springs Catholic Church who sponsored an individual or family on the Angel Tree. Thank you to those who donated funds for purchase of food items packed into family food boxes. Thank you to those who volunteered time with the Angel Tree Committee to organize and deliver items. Thank you to our HSSD Counselors, Mrs. Rosburg, and all HSSD staff involved with ensuring that any families who could benefit from the program were included. We are so thankful for our HSSD staff, students, and community who remind us - especially during the holidays - that we are all here to take care of each other.
