Angel Tree

Our Angel Tree program helps hundreds of children each year know the joy of opening a gift on Christmas morning.

About the Program

The Angel Tree Program assists low income families in Independence County with Christmas Gifts by empowering the generosity of individuals in the Independence County area. In order to be eligible for the Angel Tree Program, children must be ages two to 10 and living in the home listed, and the household must be receiving S.N.A.P. (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program).

Applications are available during October of each year for families to pick up at the Independence County DHS office. United Way relies heavily on individuals in the community to adopt an angel. Angels are available for adoption each year during late November and gifts are distributed to families in early December.
