  • angel tree ministry

    The Meade County Angel Ministry is a year round service that tends to the needs of underprivileged children within our county. At Christmas time, we are extremely busy ensuring that all our more than 1,300 angels have everything they need to "survive" winter, and extra hands are always needed to work at the North Pole. Volunteering isn't the only way to lend a hand. Collecting items in your Sunday School class, youth group or Bible study group is an excellent way to help. Our Angels range in age from newborn to 18, and this span of ages and sizes makes for an endless list of needs. 

    During the school year, we work very closely with the Family Resource Centers at every Meade County school. The Ministry helps provide school supplies, clothing, shoes, and even grocery store gift cards for students in need. You can support the Ministry by taking part in our fundraisers and collection drives, purchasing our apparel line at Save-Rite Pharmacy and adopting our Angels. We are completely volunteer driven, and 100% of funds raised go back into our community. We believe that investing in our children is the best way to bring about a positive change in our future.
