Kinship Care Angel Tree

Kinship Care Angel Tree

What is the purpose of the Kinship Care Angel Tree?

The Clayton County Kinship Care Angel Tree Program was started to provide less fortunate children being raised by their grandparents, with new clothing and toy items at Christmas.  Most of our grandparents raising their grandchildren 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 getting help elsewhere.

When can Angels be adopted?

Angels may be adopted October 15th thru December 12th.

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.

How do I adopt an Angel?

From October 15th thru December 15th call or visit the Kinship Care Resource Center to adopt an Angel from the tree.  We can email or fax the information on an Angel to you.  Call the center at 770-473-5788.

After adopting an Angel, what do I do?

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 on December 19th – 21st  using the ID numbers that were assigned to the individual Angels. Grandparents 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, they need to be returned to Kinship Care Resource Center by 2 p.m. on December 19th.
