(WARRENSBURG, Mo.) – Many local children can count on a good book for Christmas thanks to a recent donation from the University of Central Missouri’s public broadcasting station.
Rosemary Olas, UCM’s interim director of Broadcasting Services, and Mary Clevenger, outreach coordinator for KMOS-TV, presented nearly 900 children’s books for children of all ages to volunteers with the Johnson County Community Christmas Angel Tree on behalf of the television station.
The books will be distributed to area children through the program. The Angel Tree program provides Christmas gifts for children from more than 300 families in the Warrensburg area who need a little help during the holiday season.
“This annual contribution to Community Christmas Angel Tree is just one way KMOS-TV can supplement the quality children’s programming we are privileged provide to children in our viewing area,” Olas said.
This is the 12th year KMOS-TV has made donations to the Community Christmas Angel Tree program as part of the station’s community outreach program.
