Westminster is participating once again in the annual Angel Tree program. Run by Prison Fellowship Canada, this program aims to help inmates stay connected with their children while the parent is in prison.

The basic idea is simple: the prisoner identifies a gift that they would like to give their child and a donor makes that gift a reality.  Westminster has committed to finding donors for 12 children. This year we have taken on 6 local children and 6 out of town children.

The financial commitment is not huge: $30 per gift for local children, $25 per gift plus the cost of mailing for remote children.  A sign-up sheet is located on the bulletin board across from the nametag cabinet.
