UNWRAPPING THE GIFT OF CONNECTION
Every year, Angel Tree Christmas™ brings children and their incarcerated mom or dad together on Christmas, one gift at a time.
IT STARTS WITH A GIFT
Angel Tree Christmas™ equips churches and other organizations to serve incarcerated parents by providing a pathway for strengthening and restoring their relationships with their children and families. Angel Tree Christmas mobilizes local churches and community organizations to give hundreds of thousands of children a gift, the Gospel message, and a personal message of love on behalf of their incarcerated parent. In addition, many partner churches meet the material, emotional, and spiritual needs of prisoners’ families through year-round ministry such as camping, sports camps, and enfolding Angel Tree families into church life.
WAYS TO SUPPORT ANGEL TREE CHRISTMAS
One in 49 children in the U.S. has a parent behind bars—that’s equal to one child in every classroom. You can help children know they are treasured and loved.
Sign up your church, small group, or organization to make a difference in the lives of prisoners’ families by coordinating gift deliveries and more.
SHARE ON SOCIAL
Our carefully curated Angel Tree Christmas Toolkit includes everything you need to share the Angel Tree Christmas message on social media.
ABOUT ANGEL TREE® CHRISTMAS
Incarceration can strain family ties to the breaking point. Through Angel Tree Christmas, churches and organizations share 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. Every Angel Tree child is also given access to a free, easy-to-read copy of the Bible in English or Spanish.
And the story continues all year, as churches continue to build relationships with the Angel Tree families in their area. Angel Tree Camping® makes Christ-centered summer camp possible for prisoners’ kids and Angel Tree Sports Camps® helps youth be champions on the field and in life. Through each program and mentoring opportunity, you can join Angel Tree to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of families in your community!
