Already there have been Angels coming forth to support this year's program. This summer, a woman in Jamestown, R.I. donated clothing. In early fall, the Harley Owners Group (HOGS) conducted their annual ride to collect toys. In early October, a family in Jackson held an October Fest raising over $1,200 in donations for Angels & Elves. Bob McGraw, golf pro at Eagle Mountain Golf Course, dedicated greens fees received on Oct. 17, the last day of golf, to Angels & Elves, as well as donations from a Don Ho 50/50. Eileen Langdon donated clothing from Langdon's going-out-of-business sale. Another lady moving out of the area donated a sizeable amount of wrapping paper, ribbons, bows and decorations.

Dick Ficke and Marie Lee will coordinate this year's Angels & Elves program as one of the many community services of the Kiwanis Club of Mount Washington Valley.
