Argyle Angel Tree Program 2021 - Thank You to Everyone Who Adopted Angels and Volunteered

We would like to say Thank You to everyone in Argyle who donated items for our students on the Argyle Angel Tree this year. We could not have done it without all of you! Many families, local businesses and student groups adopted Angels this year. The AHS UNICEF Club went shopping for the Angels they adopted and many other student groups did the same. We had community members, families, teachers and staff dropping off gift cards and items as well as local businesses helping out with last-minute needs for the Angel Tree families. The families who received gifts were so grateful. #WeAreArgyle
