Each year Crittenton Services conducts a holiday gift drive known as The Angel Tree Program that collects holiday donations from October to early December.
Last year alone individual donors, community partners, and corporate sponsors provided holiday gifts for more than 500 children and their families located throughout Southern California that are using the services of the following programs: Crittenton’s Short-Term Residential Treatment Center, Wraparound Family Services, Family Preservation Program, Outpatient Mental Health Services, Teen Mom and Baby Program, Foster Care Program, and the Transitional Age Youth Program.
It is through the generosity of those who contribute to Crittenton’s Annual Angel Tree Program that allows us to meet the demonstrated need of the youth and families in our care during the holiday season.
Crittenton’s Angel Tree Program also serves as an opportunity for anyone to start a connection with our mission, and to help us continue to heal the wounds of trauma, neglect and abuse.
So, if you have some extra time this holiday season why not be a part of creating some holiday magic for the youth and families that need it the most.
There are a number of ways to help and know that 100 percent of all Crittenton Angel Tree donations goes directly to the children and families enrolled in our programs.
We need all the helpful elves we can get this year….and that elf can be you!
