The Echo Chamber is teaming up with Prison Fellowship and adopting Families and children in the San Joaquin County!
What is the role of the gift?
The gift provides a tangible expression of love that connects the incarcerated parent and their child. Angel Tree children feel remembered by their loved one because of this simple act. Churches purchase a minimum of one gift (valued at approximately $25) for each child.
How does Angel Tree Christmas empower your community?
Echo Chamber volunteers will deliver the gifts on behalf of incarcerated parents at families’ homes or at an Angel Tree Christmas event. Both contexts provide an opportunity to model and share the Gospel, and each can lead to ongoing relationship and continued connection.
How does Angel Tree Christmas serve incarcerated parents?
When you provide a gift for a child, you not only bless that child; you also bless the parent behind bars. He or she has the rare opportunity to feel that they have provided something special for their child. Through the personal message, their own words of love can reach the child they miss so much. Your service nurtures this connection and spreads hope to incarcerated parents.
We have adopted 35 families to supply gifts to which we will collect from December 1st-19th.
We are asking our community Partners to join forces with The Echo Chamber and sponsor 5-10 gifts per organization. Your organization can also provide funds through gift card of direct funds for Echo Chamber to purchase.
