Angel Tree 2021 Donations Due By December 11
This year we will support the mothers and children from Friendship House’s Empowerment Center. We are asking members of SsAM to participate by donating either $25 or $50 gift cards from either Visa or Walmart so that the mothers and older children can purchase gifts. Please drop the gift cards at church in a specially marked envelope with your name and Angel Tree on the front of the envelope. Individuals can also write a check to SsAM with Angel Tree in the memo line or give cash – again placed in a specially marked envelope. You may also click here to use SsAM’s on-line donation form. Again, make a note that the donation is for Angel Tree. Final date to receive the gift cards and receive contributions is Saturday, December 11. For details, contact Alice Smith at 302-376-0200.
In 2020 we also supported the mothers and children from Friendship House’s Transitional Housing at Christmas.
The Angel Tree project at Christmas, 2020, was another success. Ten children received at least four gifts from eight individual members of SsAM who took the gifts right to Epiphany House on Union Street.
In addition, 27 church members purchased gift cards so that 14 mothers, seven teenagers, and six staff members received $50 in gift cards.
In addition, a donation was made from the AIM Fund to Friendship House to provide socks, hats, and gloves for the homeless that come to the walk-up breakfast each week.
The Community Advocacy Committee thanks the members of SsAM for their continued generosity of spirit.
