The Lewisville High School Student Council has organized its 13th annual Lewisville ISD (LISD) Angel Tree, a gift donation campaign created to provide a wonderful holiday experience for less fortunate children – newborns through 19-year-olds – across all LISD schools.
Angels are nominated by LISD school counselors and Communities In Schools of North Texas social workers, who compile a list of each child’s “needs” and “wants.”
“The reason I believe Angel Tree is so successful is the fact that the gifts go directly to the children of LISD,” LHS Student Activities Director Allison Stamey said. “It unites the district and teaches numerous life lessons such as giving back.”
Added LHS senior and LISD Liaison Officer Jaida Johnson, “Angel Tree is a really great way to spread the holiday spirit and give back to the community. You have the opportunity to help out kids that don’t have as much as you do.”
Johnson, along with LHS Student Body President Kayla Conner and Community Connections Officer Megan Fritz, have arranged for Student Council members to deliver the presents to the school of each particular angel before the district lets out for holiday break.
If needed, Stamey and LHS staff members will hand-deliver gifts to homes of families who are not able to make it to their child’s school for pick-up.
By the morning of Dec. 24, all presents will be in the angels’ homes.

If you are unable to adopt one of the 700-plus angels but would like to help, gift cards may be donated or checks can be made payable to “LHS ABC.”
