Angel Tree

Angel Tree 2014

The tradition of the Fountain of Life Angel Tree began many years ago! It is through the grace of God and the congregation’s generous giving that we are able give literally hundreds to gifts to those in our community.
 
How do we pick who to help?
Most of the families that become our angels are families that local school counselors have picked as the neediest. Some of our Angels are members of our church. Some of our Angels are families of our community that are sponsored by church members. Each person under the age of 18 is allowed 3 gifts – 2 things they need and 1 that they want. Angels over the age of 18 are given one gift card.
” I am so grateful by the gifts my children and I received and the look on my children’s faces were priceless…. I felt like my children and I were showed love without any judgement…  You were a true blessing to me and my family!”  –  Parent
“Your church family has been such a blessing to so many families.  Thank you for sharing God’s love in the community…. for caring for the least of these.
    East Forsyth Middle School
“Thank you so much for supporting KES and families in our community!  We couldn’t do it without the support of people like you!”
 
 Kernersville Elementary School

Red Angels

The RED Angels represent One Child from a specific elementary school who were not included in the Salvation Army Angel tree for a local school. They have no other angels on the tree, and are represented by Red Angels. They are asking specifically for a $75.00 gift card for these children.
 

How can you help? First of all please cover the Angel Tree in prayer. It is through God’s grace that we have always met the needs of those represented on the tree.

I will need people to help shop this year.

Please contact me if you can help.

Three additional ways that you can help:

  1. Pick one or more Angels from the tree.    IMPORTANT: Each Angel has a code on it. Sign out the Angel in the Angel Tree book. Please put your name and phone number or email. This helps me track missing Angels. Shop for your Angel and then return it back to FOL. If your gift is a gift card, there is a box at the Information Center or you may drop it off in the Church office.
  2. Donate money for the Angel Tree – you can put cash or a check in the offering plate for the Angel tree. Please put it in an envelope or write ANGEL TREE in the memo line a check. By donating through the church your donation is tax deductible. I will then take the donated money and shop for Angels left on the tree.
  3. Don’t Want to Shop? You can pick an Angel, give money and leave the shopping (and wrapping) to volunteers!
 
 

Can we give gently used items? Yes for some items – Bikes, Game systems, Electronic games, Infant items, For other items please contact me and we can discuss it.
