Angel Tree Project

Angel Tree Project

Many of the “working poor” live paycheck-to-paycheck and do not have the extra resources to cover unexpected expenses or holiday gifts. Each year, ADTH adopts approximately 75 impoverished families in our community through our Angel Tree Project. These working families in Wake County are referred to us by licensed social workers, schools or churches registered with ADTH. Please consider assisting in one of the following ways (all donations are tax deductible):

Adopt a Family

Individuals, families, an office, sports team or a neighborhood can adopt a family. Each child on the list should receive two gifts of basic necessities and two gifts of fun items, for a total of four wrapped items. We do not provide gifts for adults, as they will receive an Essentials Basket and Gift cards provided by ADTH. If you are able to adopt an ADTH family, you are welcome to come and share in the giving of the gifts. It is a humbling yet powerful experience.

Adoptions are now closed for 2021.  Thank you to all of our supporters!!  See you next year!

We also provide each adopted family with an Essentials Basket full of household items. If you would like to donate completed baskets or specific basket items, please contact Mary Ellen Bruno and Peggy Thompson.

For more information, please see ADTH Essentials Baskets.pdf​.

Donations can be dropped off at St. Michael’s Archangel Hall 808 High House Road, Cary on Friday, December 17th from 4pm until 6pm.  

Grocery Gift Cards

Each adopted family also receives gift cards to local grocery stores so that their family may share in a holiday meal. To donate grocery gift cards, please send them to A Doorway to Hope at: P.O. Box 911, Cary, NC 27511 by December 1st. Gift cards to Target, Walmart and Food Lion are especially useful. All denominations are welcome! If you have an office that would be willing to participate, we are happy to provide a small Christmas tree with ornaments as reminders to bring back gift cards. Any questions, please contact Kelly Williams.

If it is more convenient for you to contribute to our Angel Tree project via a monetary donation, you may use a credit card to donate below or you can send checks to A Doorway to Hope at: P.O. Box 911, Cary, NC 27511.

We will make every effort to adhere to COVID guidelines when handling drop-off, pick-up, and/or delivery of all donations.
