More than 100 disabled adults in Jasper County, who otherwise may not have received anything, will now have a Christmas present to open.

The Jasper County Public Administrator's Office has placed a Christmas adoption tree on the first floor of the county courthouse.

Each star ornament contains the name and wish list of a person who currently has less than $100 in his or her bank account, and no family or friends to spend Christmas with.

Organizers are asking volunteers to spend around $20 total on wish list items such as new socks, underwear and other personal care items.

"$20 for a gift or $10 for a gift, it would mean a huge amount to somebody who expected nothing at Christmas," said Angie Casavecchia, Jasper County Public Administrator. "To know that someone remembered them and it be a surprise, that's priceless."

Organizers aim to have all donations collected by the week before Christmas.

Those who wish to donate, but are unable to pick up an ornament at the courthouse, can receive a wish list over the phone by calling the Jasper County Public Administrator's Office at 417-358-4271.
