Angel Tree connects incarcerated parents with their children at Christmastime with a gift that carries the parent’s personal message and the Gospel message.
How Angel Tree Christmas Works
Incarcerated parents nominate their children for a Christmas gift during the summer to Prison Fellowship. Prison Fellowship vets the applications and assigns them to churches and organizations near the children. Recipients of Angel Tree gifts are then eligible for a scholarship to attend a Christian summer camp, available annually until they turn 18 or their parent is released.
Spokane Fatherhood Initiative has elected to participate in the Virtual Angel Tree process which serves children without a local church or organization sponsor. Folks who wish to participate may select a child through an online portal, purchase the gift online, and Angel Tree will deliver it to the child with the parent’s message and a Gospel message on behalf of the parent in prison.
An Angel Tree Christmas gift may be the only connection a child has with their incarcerated parent all year. It can convey a parent’s love and play a significant role in family reunification upon the parent’s release. Reconnecting with their children is also crucial for returning citizens to reintegrate successfully and avoid reoffending.
