This holiday season you can help a Davidson family in need again through the “Angel Tree” at Davidson Town Hall. The tree went up this week in the lobby, hung with ornaments bearing descriptions of local residents and their holiday wishes. To help, just stop by, grab an ornament, and return a wrapped gift.
