OHS basketball players wrap for Earth Angels

Thirty-one basketball players from the Oregon High School’s girls program helped Earth Angels get their gifts unloaded and wrapped on Dec. 16.

Freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors helped unload donated gifts from Rock River Center collection vans and then wrapped the gifts at the Mt. Morris Senior Center from 9 a.m. to around 12:30 p.m.

Rock River Center vans picked up donated items at drop sites throughout Ogle County.

Gifts were distributed this week.

Linda “Granny” Straith, Forreston, spearheads the Earth Angels program collecting toys and donations for Christmas gifts for needy families in Ogle County.
