Santa’s Helpers – Angel Tree

Hello all! The holiday season is here and this will be a hard Christmas on many folks, but we have the opportunity to make sure every child in our community has a present waiting for them under the tree. To become one of Santa’s Helpers at AUMC and sponsor a child from our Angel tree, simply email me at jaquie.campos@arlington-umc.org. The cost of each sponsorship is $100 that can be sent by check to the office. That means we will be raising a total of $1500 this Christmas. Please consider giving what you can!

I will be handling all the shopping, wrapping, and delivery. That’s right! You don’t need to do any shopping to help out! You will receive an ornament with the name of the who you helped sponsor.

The children and their parents fill out letters to Santa on Thanksgiving letting us know how to help them out this Christmas. The gifts for each child are specified to fit their unique needs such as new socks, shoes, underwear or diapers, and a warm jacket. Each child also receives a book and some small toys to encourage their interests and creativity.

Last year this worked better than I could have ever imagined! We were able to sponsor every child in our community and the families were beyond grateful. I think we can do the same this year!

This is the list of the children we will be sponsoring this year:
