IT STARTS WITH A GIFT
Angel Tree®, a program of Prison Fellowship®, helps caring people like you reach out to children who are feeling the loneliness and shame of having a mom or dad in prison. Each summer, prison chaplains receive Angel Tree Christmas applications for their facilities, and incarcerated moms and dads sign up their children for the program. Then, local church volunteers provide these children with the Gospel message and Christmas gifts—as well as a special note from their mom or dad, reminding them of their love. Angel Tree is an effective way to open prisoner-parents’ hearts to God’s love, and it connects hurting families with local churches that can walk alongside them all year long.
All Hayden wants for Christmas is to hear from his dad.
Each year Hayden watches his friends are enjoy the Christmas season with their families. But all this young man longs for is to hear from his dad, who is in prison on drug charges.
Each year, Hayden gets so excited for Angel Tree. Last year, he got an Anaheim Ducks ball cap, a Gospel booklet, new Legos, and a navy blue sweat suit. When he received his red gift bag, he exclaimed, “Look, it has my name on it!”
Hayden only gets to see his father once a year in prison. Angel Tree is his chance to stay connected to his dad, who he loves so very much. And that’s all he wants this Christmas—is to hear from his dad. With your help, Angel Tree can make that happen for Hayden, and thousands of children like him.
