Ascension Angel Tree
Really more of an Angel Gift Shop...
The Ascension Angel Gift Shop is a special way to provide the joy of Christmas presents to deserving children in our congregation, but it's done a little differently than the traditional "angel tree." We ask parents who need gifts for their children to "register" each child by giving us names, ages, and genders. Angels are then available to pick up, each one identifying a specific gift, i.e. a regulation basketball, or a "Fisher-Price toy for a child under age 3", etc., to be purchased. Unwrapped gifts are brought back to the church.
Volunteers then stock the "gift shop" with those items and allow the parents to come and select an age appropriate gift for their children. Volunteers wrap the gifts or provide gift wrap for the parents to take home.
