NORTH PLATTE, Neb. KNOP-TV Despite the weather, the season of the holiday spirit was alive and well at one local bank Tuesday.

Wells Fargo Bank and the North Platte Senior Center kicked off the annual Angel Tree campaign with Christmas carols, snacks and childhood memories.

The program provides Christmas gifts to seniors who reside at the Linden's and the North Platte Care Center.

Although this year's turnout for the kickoff was low, residents who attended say they showed up because they know the importance of the program.

The ornaments, or wish list, can be picked up at either of the three nursing homes. The gifts must be returned no later than December 20th.
