CAN YOU HELP ME?
Dearest Angel Tree,
My name is Bryanna. I have been incarcerated for a little over five years, and I am finally going home. Your program seems like the right program to reach out to in my time of need.
I am ever so grateful for what your program has provided for me and my children over the past five years. I could not have done it without you. Allow me to take this time to say thank you.
I am also writing you today hoping for a bigger blessing: I am getting out of prison in less than 90 days, and I am in need of assistance … as I re-enter back into society.
As a mother to two small children—my loves M——, who is 10, and M—— who is 6—I am starting my life over in Delaware, where I have little to no resources.
I'm hoping you can help me … This is my reentry back into society, so I am starting with nothing. Also, in a city where I have minimal assistance. I have a little money [that] I was able to save over the years with the jobs prison provides.
I will be grateful for all you do. Maybe there is a program in Delaware that is willing to assist in any way?
P.S. Thank you in advance for all you have done for us. Angel Tree is a blessing.
