Slam dunk legend Kenny Dobbs has made a name for himself in basketball, but his passion is helping at-risk kids get on the right track.
Joe was ashamed when he was arrested in front of his daughters. And then Angel Tree—a unique prison ministry to the children of prisoners—stepped in.
Through Christmas presents and loving volunteers and churches, Angel Tree takes what begins as a tragedy for many families—the incarceration of their loved one—and turns it into a blessing.
For the last three years, Green Bay Packers player Kenny Clark has held a special Angel Tree Sports Clinic for children of prisoners. For one day, 300 kids played alongside NFL football stars, learning valuable lessons in sports and in life.
This month, the LA Rams hosted Angel Tree kids at an Angel Tree Sports Clinic at their practice facility. Through lessons, drills, and fun competition, kids who might not otherwise have a chance to attend a day camp were treated like champions by their local heroes.
Former Angel Tree Child and current Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Kenny Clark was a finalist for the Walter Payton Award this year.
Thank you for your generous support of Angel Tree. This Christmas, more than 290,000 children with incarcerated parents were blessed.
Angel Tree may start with a Christmas gift, but the families of prisoners have year-round needs, too. Find out how your church can meet the needs of Angel Tree families all year long.
Prison Fellowship is grateful to Kenny Clark for being a leader in his community and an inspiring role model for children with a parent in prison.
When Kenny's dad went to prison when he was only 9 years old, the world turned dark. Now that he is an NFL star, Kenny is helping brighten children's worlds.
