Angel Tree & LARS Holiday Program 2013

It’s Angel Tree time again!  We have several families from the Angel Tree organization and LARS Holiday program that we will be serving this year.  The Angel Tree organization buys gifts for the children of incarcerated parents who live in Laurel.  The LARs Holiday program provides gifts for entire families here in Laurel.

Our church extends this ministry by providing a food basket to accompany the gifts to the family. We have  8 families at this time and about 15 children. The “angels” will be on a tree in the narthex. Take an angel and buy a gift using the suggestions on the card. You may wrap it, if you like. Please attach the “angel” to the gift.

Please return all gifts  from the Angel Tree families to the church by Dec. 14th.

All gifts for the LARS Holiday program is a week earlier, Dec. 8th.  

(The angel you pick from the tree will have the program name and due date on it).

The food list is below. All food items can be left in the Narthex labeled “Angel Tree Program.”
