Angel Tree Project / Operation School Child
Prison Fellowship’s Angel Tree program is the only nationwide effort that specifically reaches out to hundreds of thousands of innocent children who carry the heavy burden of their parents’ incarceration throughout the year. While in prison, moms and dads are given the opportunity to give a gift to their child so the child knows they are not forgotten. SCUMC gets the chance to help that prisoner by purchasing the gifts on their behalf. For more information about Angel Tree, visit http://www.prisonfellowship.org/atc/atc2014/angel-tree-christmas-2014/?sc=WB1521000.
We also include in our Angel Tree program children that our local schools or teachers from our church recommend. These children often have little or no Christmas. Many of these students are actually declared homeless. We purchase a toy and a learning tool for these children.
