NECCO asks people to be superheroes: Trees detail needs of area youth

A foster care company is giving people two opportunities to help children in need this holiday season.

NECCO has put up two Christmas trees, one at the Armory Smokehouse in Ironton and the other at Casa Grande Mexican Restaurant in South Point.

Decorating the superhero-themed trees are tags with information on a case.

“They can take the tags and, on the back, is the age and gender of the child and their needs and wishes,” Nateefa Lee, with NECCO, said of the 29 tags at the tree at the Armory.

Individuals can then buy gifts for the child and drop them off at the restaurants by noon on Dec. 14, at which point, NECCO will distribute them.

In addition to the cases at both restaurants, the tree at the Armory will be up for bid as well, with proceeds going toward the effort.
