Brooke Tome with GSW said 200 angels are still waiting to be adopted.

“GSW as a whole is just really big on community and we’re always looking for ways to give back to our community and so this is just one of our ways to be able to give back,” said Tome.

If you’d like to help, visit one of two angel trees located around GSW or you can call the Division of Student Engagement and Success at (229) 928-1387.
