There are still eight names left on the Angel Tree at Needham Bank. Toys are due back to the bank by Dec. 17.
The community of Medfield has been extremely supportive of the Angel Tree Program but your help is still needed. There are still eight Angel tags remaining on the tree at Needham Bank with the deadline to purchase and return the gifts less than one week away. All gifts need to be purchased, wrapped and placed under the tree at Needham Bank on or before Monday, Dec. 17. Please consider stopping by Needham Bank on Main Street and taking an Angel tag. Your kindness will be greatly appreciated by the Medfield Youth Outreach workers and the children who will benefit by your generosity.
