TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) – Cherokee Nation Businesses has contributed $20,000 to the Cherokee Nation Angel Project to help make Christmas dreams come true for thousands of Cherokee children.

Along with the contribution, employees from the tribe, its business arm and entertainment properties have adopted more than 650 angels. This marks the ninth consecutive year that Cherokee Nation Businesses and its employees have participated in adopting angels for the annual program.

In 2013, more than 2,200 children received gifts through the tribe’s efforts. Officials expect to exceed that number this year. The Cherokee Nation Angel Project has helped children in need for more than a decade.

The Cherokee Nation Angel Project assists Cherokee children who fall under low-income guidelines and reside within the nation’s 14-county jurisdiction. The Cherokee Nation and its businesses employ 9,000 people.
