Deer Path showed up again in 2022
Deer Path has once again participated in Angel Tree to provide gifts for many families in our community! Thank you to all who sponsored and donated! A special thanks to Kelly Growden who coordinates this for Deer Path each year. Her dedication is much appreciated and many lives have been blessed this season!
What is Angel Tree?
Sponsors are matched with a neighbor in need, given a wishlist, and purchase gifts. Kelly and her team collect everything and distribute gifts to each family to maintain privacy. There is no minimum to participate--it's up to you to decide what to buy and how much to spend. This can be a huge blessing to families who cannot afford to make the holidays special for their kids.
Here are a few comments from those who have been affected in prior years through Angel Tree:
"I cannot express what Angel Tree has meant to my family. Being a single mother is stressful, but not wanting to disappoint your kids at Christmas is the hardest. I'm so grateful for the people who kept the Christmas spirit alive for my kids. Thank you a million times."
"[Our sponsors'] generosity is overwhelming. I can't stop crying tears of joy. [Child] has not stopped hugging her new stuffed animal."
Giving is just as rewarding: From frequent sponsor:
"As a mom, I couldn't imagine my kids waking up on Christmas morning to nothing. Families come upon hard times and I love aiding in the ability for them to have a wonderful Christmas."
If you want to participate for 2023, please reach out to Kelly!
