What is Angel Tree?

The Angel Tree Program connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts purchased and donated by volunteers, who then deliver the Christmas gifts in the name of the incarcerated parent. An important aspect is that the children, not only receive the Christmas gifts, but the volunteer conveys the Christmas story and Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As you can see, in the timeline, there are  many opportunities to volunteer with Angel Tree. 
 
Monetary donations are also accepted.  You can bring your donation to the church office or drop it in a labeled envelope in the offering plate on Sunday.
