Christmas Angel Tree

Welcome to virtual Christmas Angel Tree, coordinated by the Deacons. Make a difference in a family’s life this Christmas!

Every year, the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church Deacons sponsor an Angel Tree drive with partner organizations, which allows our members to purchase a gift for a child who might not otherwise find a gift under the tree. This year, Angel Tree will have two recipients: children living in a New York City family shelter near the church, and children in the Bronx supported by our faith-based Mission Partner, Operation Exodus, that runs year-round programs for young children and parents.

Most years, members would take an ornament off a tree in the church gallery or narthex that might say “Girl, 8, paint set,” or “Boy, 12, winter jacket.” A week or two later, members would return with their gifts and the Deacons would make sure they got to the right child.

This year Angel Tree looks different: we have gone virtual! The Deacons have created an easy-to-use online registry.  Click on the link by November 30th using the instructions below to make sure your gift arrives at Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church by Friday, December 4th. The Deacons will make sure the gifts get distributed to the children and families.

If you have any questions, or if you are interested in additional ways to support Angel Tree 2020, please email [email protected]. For those wishing to provide a donation in lieu of the registry, we welcome checks which can be mailed to the church, attn. Kristia Tolede. Thank you for writing the check to Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church and noting ‘Deacons’.
