SMU LAW STUDENTS TO DONATE TOYS TO CHILDREN OF INMATES

DALLAS (SMU) -- Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law Student Bar Association and Christian Legal Society are sponsoring an “Adopt an Angel” program to provide Christmas gifts for the children of prison inmates. The program is coordinated through Prison Ministries of Dallas.

The law students will select an “angel tag” from a decorated Christmas tree in the Underwood Law Library, 6550 Hillcrest Ave. The students will purchase and wrap the Christmas gift before returning the tag and the wrapped gift to the tree before Dec. 12, when gifts and tags will be collected for distribution to the children.
