The Bryan Police Officers Association is hosting its 2nd annual Blue Angel Tree. Blue Angel is organized by the Bryan Police Officers Association and is a holiday project designed to help the less fortunate families in our city during the holiday season. Christmas is a time to gather with friends and family and give thanks for the gifts and good fortunes we have received. Let’s take the time to pay it forward and contribute to someone else’s good fortune by supporting the Blue Angel Project. The Blue Angel Tree will have tags listing needy children and elderly in our community. The tree will be housed in the lobby of the Bryan Police Department starting November 16, 2013, but will make stops at retailers in our community. You can help by selecting an angel from the tree and purchasing gifts to be presented at our Blue Christmas Party. We will also be accepting new toy donations and monetary donations to purchase gifts for the families on the tree. All gifts are to be turned into the Bryan Police Department by December 10th at 5pm. The Bryan Police Officer’s Association will then present these gifts to the families in need on December 14th at the Bryan Police Department. The presentation is also open to those who donated gifts to Blue Angel.
The Blue Angel Tree will be at the following Bryan locations for your convenience:
