Angel Tree 2014
You can help change the life of a prisoner’s child FOREVER!
Every child has a story. For 2.7 million American children, that story is filled with the abandonment, loneliness and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. For many, it may also include following their parents down the same destructive road to incarceration.
Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. This unique program gives your church an opportunity to share Christ’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners.
Angel Tree is YOUR opportunity to share the love of God with a child! You can contact Ina Smalzer if you have questions or want to get involved.
Angel Tree Sundays (picking an angel–a child to buy gifts for) are November 23 and 30.
Volunteers are needed to help wrap gifts and deliver gifts.
