Our Angel Tree Ministry at Grace is the work of retired teacher, Gwen Baccus, who keeps in touch with at-risk Clark County teachers. During the Advent season identify families from several schools who will have little or no Christmas. From the tree, parishioner’s select a card with the simple wishes of a child or a family of children.
Children fill out a card that gives their sizes, color choices and a wish list item. Many enjoy the gift of shopping for these children while others provide gift cards from Walmart or elsewhere.
Parishioners shop for, and wrap the gifts, affixing the original card as the label that includes the identity of the child and of gifts requested The greatest need is for clothing and shoes.
