Be an ‘angel’ this holiday season and help kids in need

Northside Counts! 2020 Census

The Parent/Teacher Organization of Pittsburgh King ALA is preparing its annual Christmas Angel Tree.

The tree will consist of bells with the age and gender of a student at the school who would not normally receive a gift at Christmas time. More than 300 boys and girls from kindergarten through eighth grade, ages 5 to 14-years old, are in need.

Please include the gender and age on the gift, as well as your contact information, if you wish.

Gifts may be dropped off at Pittsburgh King’s main office, 50 Montgomery Place, by Dec. 15. Gifts will be distributed on Dec. 22. Julie Peterson, vice president of Central Northside Neighborhood Council, also will collect gifts to take to the school. She can be reached at
