The angel tree with some of the gifts under it. “We bought some clothes, makeup and a remote controlled car,” senior Kate Femali said.

The Student Council and Kind Committee took the rest of the angels off of the Angel Tree in the office of secretary, Laura Sobeski sent out an email saying there were many left.
Green Lake County organizes the angel tree and gets families to send in their information. Then the Green Lake county sends the angels already made and written to Berlin High School.
Every year the school requests 25 angels. There have been years in the past where those angels have been taken earlier in the year and then the school requests 25 more.
“So far, every year we have had all the angels taken. It’s nice to see the compassion and excitement the students and staff demonstrate to help families that need a little extra help during the holidays,” Sobieski said.
“This year, the angels were not taken very quickly and the deadline (December 8) was approaching so we asked some clubs/organizations if they would help out. The KIND Committee and Student Council took the remaining angels,” Sobieski said.
Seniors Kate Femali and Alex Budde went shopping for both clubs.
“We were shopping for around three hours but we were having fun with it,” Femali said.
The KIND Committee and Student Council took 10 angels. Student Council took six angels and the KIND Committee took the remaining four.
“KIND Committee had a budget but the Student Council had money set aside so they just did a $50 limit for each kid so it was even,” Budde said.
