Angel Tree - Reveille United Methodist Church

Jul 14, 2018

Welcome to the Angel Tree page of Behind the Veil Christian Ministries. We are excited to share with you our heartwarming initiative in partnership with Reveille United Methodist Church. Through the Angel Tree program, we aim to bring love, joy, and hope to children in need during the holiday season.

What is Angel Tree?

Angel Tree is an annual program that seeks to connect caring individuals and communities with children who have a parent in prison. This unique program allows these children to experience the love and support they need, especially during a time that can be emotionally challenging. Our collaboration with Reveille United Methodist Church enables us to extend our reach and impact, making a difference in the lives of these children.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple yet profound - to brighten the holiday season for children affected by incarceration. We believe that every child deserves to be seen, loved, and celebrated, regardless of their circumstances. Through Angel Tree, we strive to empower these children by providing them with gifts, support, and a sense of belonging.

How Does Angel Tree Work?

The Angel Tree program operates in a few simple steps:

  1. Identification: We work closely with correctional institutions and local agencies to identify children who would benefit from the Angel Tree program. These children are typically between the ages of 0-18 and have a parent in prison.
  2. Wishlist Collection: Once identified, we ask the children to share their holiday wishes by creating a personalized wishlist. These wishes are carefully collected and recorded to ensure that every child receives a gift that brings them joy and a sense of care.
  3. Gift Distribution: Through the generosity of individuals, families, and the Reveille United Methodist Church community, we are able to fulfill these wishes and provide the children with gifts. Our volunteers wrap the presents and organize distribution events to foster a warm and festive atmosphere. Seeing the smiles on the children's faces during these events is truly heartwarming.
  4. Support and Connection: Angel Tree is not just about gifts; it's about establishing a lasting connection and support system for these children. We encourage our volunteers to go beyond the presents and build meaningful relationships with the children, providing them with ongoing mentorship and emotional support throughout the year.

Getting Involved

Angel Tree would not be possible without the support of passionate individuals like you. There are several ways you can get involved:

  1. Donate: Your generous donations can make a significant impact in brightening a child's holiday season. Your contribution helps us purchase gifts, organize events, and provide ongoing support to these children throughout the year. Every donation, no matter the size, has the power to make a difference.
  2. Volunteer: Join our dedicated team of volunteers and experience the joy of making a direct impact. Whether it's wrapping gifts, organizing events, or providing mentorship, your time and effort can bring immeasurable happiness to a child in need.
  3. Spread the Word: Help us raise awareness about Angel Tree and the incredible work we do. Share our mission and stories on social media, engage with our campaigns, participate in fundraising events, and encourage your friends, family, and community to join us in creating a brighter future for these children.
