It Starts with a Gift!
WHAT IS ANGEL TREE?
Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship®, is the largest national outreach that targets the children of prisoners. Every year Angel Tree works through thousands of local churches and organizations to give Christmas gifts to children on behalf of their incarcerated parents – helping to reconcile inmates and their families to God and to one another, and to stop the generational cycle of crime.

Make a Donation
Prisoners’ children all over the country suffer through the confusion and shame that comes with having a parent who is incarcerated. And the reality is, they are at high risk of following in their parents’ footsteps.
Can you imagine what would happen if our communities intervened in the lives of these hurting children . . . if someone stepped in and told them they are loved, valued, and have a parent in Heaven who will never leave them? That is what Angel Tree does all throughout the year.
With your gift to Angel Tree Prison Fellowship in partnership with the KenTra Care Organization, you give these boys and girls the support they need all throughout the year and introduce them to the Father in Heaven who loves them.
Through the delivery of a Christmas gift and the Gospel given on behalf of the incarcerated parent, Angel Tree boys and girls are given the free gift of salvation, feel loved and remembered by their parent, and experience the simple joys of the Christmas season. Angel Tree also provides ministry to the children through its summer camping program and promotes family reconciliation through discipleship and mentoring.
Lives are change, familes are reunited and God is glorified. What a great investment. Please donate today!
