Angel Tree makes miracles happen with enormous community support, spirit of generosity and the continued kindheartedness of Lethbridge and area. We will need a lot of help to fulfill the need we expect wiln estimated 2900 children, 0 – 18 years old will find gift bundles waiting for them on Christmas morning this year. Each gift bundle is carefully packed for every child with:
Something on their wish list
Something inspirational to fuel their imaginations
Something educational to nourish their minds
Something warm and cuddly
Go to www.lfsfamily.ca for everything Angel Tree.
 
Thanks to the generosity and volunteering efforts of the team at 1st Choice Savings and Credit Union, who have supported Angel Tree for an incredible 19 years, they will kick off our fundraising campaign with a gift of $6000. This year, an incredible 98 businesses will participate as drop-off locations. It’s going to be an immense community effort again and we are overwhelmed with gratitude. “I have had the immeasurable privilege of volunteering for Angel Tree for 5 years, and every year we experience a community of giving so powerful, it’s magical. My wish is that we continue. Continue to bring joy to our Angel Tree families with astonishing acts of kindness. Continue to use this generosity as beacons of hope to sustain those in need not just for 1 day but to impact their lives for the long term.” Trina Tymko, Chair of the Angel Tree Christmas Campaign.
