Angel Tree Program

Serving Our Community:

The Multicultural Development Center and the 2nd Chance Prison Ministry has teamed up to host our Annual Angel Tree program for the 2018 Christmas season. Our goal is to collect gifts for 200 children whose parents are incarcerated.

During this time, you’ll have the opportunity to be a blessing to these children and families by either donating cash, purchasing a gift or purchasing a gift card for a child age 0 – 18. This will enable them to have a Christmas gift under the tree this year in the name of his/her parent.

More importantly, this is an opportunity to share the Gospel (Good News) with these children and their caregivers by opening our hearts and sharing the love of Christ this Christmas season.

Please have all gifts turned in no later than Sunday, December 2nd. All gifts received will be distributed to the children on Saturday, December 15, 2018. If anyone is interesting in contributing, helping, or just knowing more about the Angel Tree program, please see Bro. Ruben Johnson at the Dallas campus and Sis. Carol Barnes at the Mesquite campus.
