The main tree will feature “Lil’ Angel” ornaments made by both TACS and local students, the sales of which will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina. Guests are also invited to bring an unwrapped toy for an elementary school child to put under the tree for Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry to distribute at their annual December Holiday Program Distribution Party.
