PIMA — Opportunities to help those in need continue in the Gila Valley.

The Town of Pima has put up its Angel Wish Tree.

“The requests on those trees range from an elderly individual wanting shoes to baby bottles and formula. So if you really want to help local, you can also go down to Pima Town Hall,” said Brooke Curley with the Graham County Chamber of Commerce.

The town asks that unwrapped gifts are dropped off at Town Hall or the Pima Library no later that 4 p.m. Dec. 16.

Copper Hills Dental is also hosting an Angel Tree, this one focused on the needs of seniors in the community.

Copper Hills Dental is asking those who take a tag to bring their wrapped gift, with the tree tag attached, back to the office no later than Dec. 20.

Children are encouraged to take part in a Santa’s Workshop at The Venue on Main Street. In addition to free holiday activities, such as building a toy or painting an ornament, children can make Christmas cards for residents of Beehive Homes assisted living, Haven Health and Eden Health.

Santa’s Workshop at The Venue will take place Saturday, Dec. 10, from 3-8 p.m.
