Project Angel Tree shares the love of Christ in a tangible way and strengthens family bonds, delivering personalized gifts and the Gospel to children on behalf of their incarcerated parents at Christmas. Please join us as we support Project Angel Tree again this year. We will be doing it as in the past with a few changes incorporated to better include all congregants.


If you and/or your family would like to volunteer for any portion of the project, we would greatly appreciate it!  We need volunteers to call caregivers to check information, purchase, wrap, and deliver a gift for each child on behalf of his or her incarcerated parent.  


Needed Now: Volunteers to make phone calls to Caregivers to check information and get children's gift wishes. (We have 11 families this year which need to be contacted.)

Needs coming later: Volunteers to purchase the gifts. (later in November). Volunteers to deliver gifts. (mid December).


Gifts will be due at the church by Monday, December 6th.

Please contact Kathy McKinnell to offer your services!  mckinnell5@sbcglobal.net
