“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.”
What We Do and Why: Almost 3 million children in the U.S. grow up with a mom or dad in prison, and often these children, through no fault of their own, grow up feeling abandoned, lonely and ashamed. Angel Tree is a program of Prison Fellowship that connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts. Each year St Pats “adopts” around 20 families in Greeley and delivers presents the children in these families on behalf of their incarcerated parent. It is a simple way to help children know that a mother or father is still cares for them and is thinking of them at Christmas.
