Children in our community are counting on us to make Angel Tree® possible! This year has been unprecedented due to the pandemic, will you help connect children with their incarcerated parents and show them the love of Christ? It starts with a simple Christmas gift. Reach out to Denise Fitzgerald, Angel Tree Coordinator at 410-591-5154 to get started. The deadline is December 9, 2020.
Thank you for connecting children with their incarcerated parents through Virtual Angel Tree™! Here is your link to get started: VIRTUAL ANGEL TREE LINK. Your access code is BZSCH. After entering the code, you will see virtual tags with the names of children assigned to John Wesley. Just browse through the tags, select the child(ren) you want to sponsor, and click checkout! With just a few clicks, you can show a prisoner’s child the love of Jesus—the greatest Gift of all.
This year each child will receive a gift card from Walmart. They will receive a Christmas greeting from their incarcerated parent, a postcard to receive one Youth Bible for the household, and a Gospel message “Will You Accept God’s Gift by Trusting Jesus?” and more.
New this year you will be able to select a gift card for the care giver (optional). Each child and care giver will only receive one gift card. The cost for each gift card will be $20. When you checkout it will be $20 plus $2 fee for a total of $22 for each child selected/care giver. At checkout you can pay by credit/debit, or ACH (check routing number and account number—No PayPal). Also, you will have an option to select all siblings associated with the child you select. Note: you do not have to select all siblings. Additionally, you will be able to sort on girl or boy and the age range of the children you would like to select from.
NOTE: After you checkout; select Home; then close the website tab. You will receive an email of your transaction.
