PLYMOUTH, N.H.-Plymouth State University’s Angel Tree Project provided nearly 500 gifts to area children for this year’s Christmas season. The Angel Tree Project partners with 14 Plymouth-area schools and non-profit agencies to provide gifts for youth and teens during the holiday season; PSU Community Service Advisor Linda Corriveau said this year’s Angel tree project started with 470 gift requests, a significant increase over past years.
“Some of the recipients need socks and shoes; very basic necessities that most of us take for granted,” Corriveau said. “For some students, it’s a  realization that not everybody has what they have and they want to give back and help someone else.”

Plymouth State started the Angel Tree Project nearly twenty years ago; in that time, thousands of underprivileged children have received Christmas gifts due to the generosity of PSU students, staff, faculty and community members.
