Make It an "Angel Tree Christmas"

main image

Every child has a story...

For 2.7 million children in the U.S., that story may be 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 prisoners and their families with the love of Christ. - PrisonFellowship.org

Shandon Baptist Church is privileged to participate in "Angel Tree Christmas" once again this year.  Through the generous donations from our church members, we have the opportunity to serve 91 families/200 children at our annual Angel Tree Christmas Party scheduled for Tuesday, December 15. 

How to get involved

"Angel" forms with children's names and a brief description of age, gender and gift ideas for a clothing or toy item are available at the Angel Tree Christmas tree in the Gathering Place through Sunday, November 29.  

  • Select an Angel, purchase the gift and return the wrapped item to the church by December 6.  
  • “Angels” will also be available for members to purchase gift cards from a local grocery store which will be used to provide a holiday meal for the caregivers and children.
  • Volunteer! Sign up below or in the Gathering Place on Sunday morning.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Angel Tree Part will be on Tuesday, December 15 from 6-8pm in the gym. There are many ways to help! Serve food, greet, help children with crafts, be a table host or help with gifts!
