How Angel Tree Works
Expressing the love of Christ to children and families of prisoners.
Angel Tree is for all kinds of churches - large and small. Some churches can sponsor a few children, others can sponsor many. Each outreach can be unique and reflect your church's special gifting and heart wrapped up in it. Whether you church is large or small, Angel Tree can bring a great blessing to you and to the prisoners' families to whom you minister.
Angel Tree is a wonderful way to express Christ's love. It helps open hearts to receive the most important Gift, salvation and forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ. Angel Tree is a great vehicle to introduce these families to your church and enfold them into the body of Christ through continued ministry. We honor requests to match the same children with you church each year that the child remains eligible for Angel Tree.
Angel Tree's Part:
Over the summer, Angel Tree provides application forms to prison chaplains. The chaplains pass these out to prisoners who have children. Some restrictions apply: The children must be 18 or younger; they must be children or stepchildren of the prisoner; and there must be no court order barring the prisoner from contacting his/her children. The children must live in the United States.
The chaplains then ship the completed applications to the Angel Tree processing center where the information is scanned and entered into a computer system. The applications are then assigned to churches or organizations who have registered to participate in Angel Tree . Efforts are made to match children with a church in their own neighborhood. Partnerships between urban and suburban churches can be formed to provide for the children in areas where the need is the greatest.
