 In the past, there was a Tri-City Angel network that coordinated ways the people of the Tri-City communities of Coloma, Hartford and Watervliet could help each other out. The idea was very simple… people helping other people in a variety of small ways. Wonderful things happened. Children who needed coats and gloves got them. People who needed to start over after a fire, received essential items to lessen their burden. Children were given Christmas items, that otherwise may have gone without. The list goes on and on. What a wonderful thing!

If you have ever done a random act of kindness, you know what a blessing that can be to you. In the world we live in today, we need to help each other out. We need to show there is still goodness and kindness out there. So, who is with us on this? Do you want to be a part of giving your fellow community member a hand up in their time of need? Do you want to be responsible for putting a smile on a child’s face, when they feel there is no hope? If so, then join us in restarting the Tri-City Angel network.

The first project we want to take on is a warm winter clothing drive. Items that are needed are new (or very gently used) coats, mittens, gloves, hats and boots in any sizes. If you would like to help keep our Tri-City youth warm this winter, please drop off your items at the Tri-City Record, 138 N. Main Street, Watervliet. Let us join together and show the children of our communities that we care. We will run this collection drive through the end of November.

Feel free to write in to the Tri-City Record Angel at P.O. Box 7, Watervliet, MI 49098 or e-mail at record@tricityrecord.com with any ideas, suggestions, talents you would like to share, etc. Make sure to put it to the attention of Tri-City Angels. We look forward to hearing from you.
