Kinship Care Angel Tree

Kinship Care Angel Tree

Make a Kinship child’s wish come true this Christmas!

 

What is the purpose of the Angel Tree?
The Clayton County Kinship Care Angel Tree Program was started to provide less fortunate children being raised by their grandparents or relative caregiver with new clothing and toy items at Christmas. Most of our grandparents and relative caregivers raising their kin are living at, or below, the poverty level. Without this assistance, many of our children would receive nothing at all for Christmas.

Where do the Angels come from?
The program is open to children/families in need who are registered participants of the Kinship Care program under the Clayton County Senior Services Department. All applicants are screened for eligibility before being assisted and are not receiving help elsewhere. 

Can anyone adopt an Angel?
Yes, you may adopt as many Angels as you like. This is an excellent holiday group project. If you are adopting as a group, please consider adopting several Angels. 

When can Angels be adopted?
Angels can be adopted now through December 17th.

How do I adopt an Angel?
Now through December 17th, you can call or visit the Kinship Care Resource Center (849 Battle Creek Road, Jonesboro, GA 30236) to adopt an Angel from the tree. We can email or fax the Angel’s information to you. Call the center at 770-473-5788.

What do I do after adopting an Angel?
Your Angel information will provide you with the Angel’s name and age and suggested gift items. Please purchase new gifts for your Angel and return them to the Kinship Care Resource Center located at 849 Battle Creek Rd., Jonesboro, GA 30236. Please return the gifts unwrapped with the child’s name and ID number or Angel tag attached by December 19th. 

How much should I spend?
There is no set amount to spend — any gift is appreciated!

How are the gifts distributed?
The gifts are distributed to the families in need from December 19th – 21st using the ID numbers assigned to the individual Angels. Grandparents and relative caregivers are given a specific time to come and pick up the gifts for their children. To ensure there is time to sort and stage gifts, gifts need to be dropped off at Kinship Care Resource Center by 2 p.m. on December 19th.
