Wishes needing sponsors

December 14, 2012

Each of these colored, paper “bulbs” represents the Christmas wishes of a local child in need, and because there are still plenty hanging from the 10 Wish Trees located throughout the county (including The Inyo Register, above), Inyo-Mono Advocates for Community Action has extended the deadline to Monday, Dec. 17 in order to give residents additional time to participate in the program. Participants are asked to select a bulb off of any Wish Tree, then do a little Christmas shopping for the youngster and return the new, unwrapped gifts to the IMACA Office, 224 S. Main St. in Bishop, by Monday.
