Angel Tree Christmas Celebration
On December 20th, we will host a Christmas Party to hand out the Christmas gifts for the children affected by incarceration. Seeking volunteers to serve in many capacities. Contact us if you are interested.
Give the gift of Christmas to a child affected by incarceration.
Each year Prison Fellowship receives thousands of Angel Tree applications from prisoners throughout the country in hopes to restore or continue their relationship with their children. The inmates are so thankful for the opportunity to provide their children with a Christmas gift. In Southern California there are approximately 70,000 of these children who have a mom or dad in prison...sometimes both.
Show the Love of Jesus by sponsoring a child with a Christmas Gift. The gifts are given to the children as a gift in behalf of their incarcerated parent, as a way to strengthen and restore their relationship with one another. The children often feel abandon and broken, and these Christmas gifts provide a way to stay connected and break down the walls.
We will have a Christmas Tree during the month of November, where you can select the name of a child to sponsor. In December we will be collecting the gifts.
The cost of the gift is nominal, approximately $50 per child. Each child is blessed to receive a minimum of two gifts ($25 value each, however, you are welcome to spend more as you feel led). When you choose to sponsor a child, you will be given their name and a gift suggestion for one fun gift and one article of clothing that the parent picked out specifically for their kids. Each gift should be new, and returned unwrapped the day of collection.
