Preparations are well under way for this year’s Mercer County Angel Tree project. Now in its twelfth year, Mercer County Angel Tree represents Mercer County’s commitment to ensuring all children have gifts under the Christmas tree, including yours.
If you have children under the age of 16, come to Our Home Family Resource Center, 117 West Fayette Street in Celina, on or before November 16.
- Complete an Angel Tree application (between the hours of 9-12 and 1-4 Monday through Thursday)
- Schedule a Christmas shopping appointment
- Mark your calendar for Friday, December 8.
On Friday, December 8, you will “go Christmas shopping” for your children, selecting an outfit and two toys for each (12 and under). After your shopping is complete, all these gifts will be wrapped and packaged to be taken home and placed under the family tree. Prepackaged gift bags will be provided for your children who are 13-15 years of age. Please note: Children are not permitted to attend shopping day.
Christmas is coming and we are here to help you provide a bright, merry Christmas for your children!
Mercer County Angel Tree is a collaborative effort between Our Home Family Resource Center and Job and Family Services; area businesses, agencies, churches and other community organizations purchase gifts and donate funds to provide Angel Tree gifts for Mercer County children in income-eligible families.
If you have questions about this project, if you would like gift tags for purchasing Angel Tree gifts, or if you would like to make a cash donation toward this event, give Our Home Family Resource Center a call at 419-586-4663
