Share Your Christmas — which aids children in Texas County during the Christmas season — has begun collected donations from its headquarters on North U.S. 63 in Houston.

Generous residents step in with monetary contributions and fulfil wishes outlined in individual cases highlighted in the Houston Herald.  An Angel Tree is in place at the Houston Walmart Supercenter on South Sam Houston Blvd., where people can select an angel off the tree that highlights needs.

Applications are taken at the Houston Lions Club basement, which serves as headquarters. The deadline is Friday, Dec. 10. Hours are 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
