2016 Angel Tree Gift Giving
The Angel Tree Project helps local children by purchasing gifts for them, on
behalf of their imprisoned parent. For a

deliver the gifts before Christmas. Ideas for gifts, sizes and ages of the children will be provided. You may claim
Angels from the tree in Fellowship Hall or to sign up to help deliver presents. Gifts need to be returned to the church
by December 11. For more information, please ontact Mia Carr (563-529-2492) or Diane Schreiner (563-505-8737).
