OAHS students and staff earn their wings with angel tree12/24/2013 09:45AM ● By Acl
For the second year in a row, Oxford Area High School students and staff brought joy to many local families this holiday season by contributing to an Angel Tree sponsored by the social studies department through the Salvation Army of Chester County. Each of the high school’s social studies classrooms sponsored an “angel,” representing a child in the Oxford community who would otherwise go without during the holidays. Additional angels were adopted by other classes, staff members, and families. Gifts were collected for a total of 31 children according to clothing sizes, specific needs, and wishes for Christmas.
