Making a Difference in Your Schools and Community
The Lewisville High School Student Council has organized its 17th annual LHS Angel Tree, a gift donation campaign created to provide a wonderful holiday experience for less fortunate children – newborns through 19 year olds – across district schools.
Angels are nominated by LISD school counselors and Communities In Schools of North Texas social workers, who compile a list of each child’s “needs” and “wants.” All district schools are invited to nominate Angels and the adoption list has already topped 1,000 children – and it continues to grow by the day. Last year’s list included approximately 900 Angels.
Also part of the LHS Angel Tree expansion is the LHS Student Council inviting VIP's from the area, community groups, and other student leaders from the four district high schools – Flower Mound, Hebron, Marcus and The Colony – to participate in the wrapping the presents. Lewisville High School will deliver presents to the school of each particular Angel before the district lets out for holiday break on Dec. 21.
“The LHS Angel Tree is one of the most rewarding projects that we have ever started. I’m proud Lewisville High School has continued this campaign and even more excited it is open to all of Lewisville ISD. Over the past few years, we have added more and more schools from across the district that requested to be a part of it. Everyone is invited to submit names for Angels.
The students involved in this project are changed forever. They learn that working hard for another human being’s happiness can also bring happiness to your life. The campaign also teaches students how to plan, organize and carry out a project. They all become better people and stronger leaders because of their work on Angel Tree.
It makes me so happy to know children will have a better holiday by the actions of LISD’s schools and communities."
-LHS Student Activities Director Allison Stamey
“Angel Tree is special because it gives us the opportunity to significantly impact children and their families throughout LISD. The program supports those with financial struggles not only by gifting them with toys and games, but by supplying necessities, such as clothing and gift cards for groceries. The child you’re adopting could be a neighbor, a classmate or even a good friend."
