The Angel program is now FULL for 2023 for both Sherburne and Anoka County. Thank you all so much for your support!
Our Christmas Angel Program is our biggest event of the year! Many of our clients are secluded, living on budgets of less than $100/month, or have simply outlived their friends and family, meaning Christmas can be a sad and difficult time of year for them. That's where we come in.
Here's how it works: Our senior and disabled adult clients, with the help of their case manager or residential facility coordinator, fill out a wish list. These lists are sent to Granny's and then we match the wishes to Angels (YOU!) who anonymously purchase and wrap the presents. We ask clients to keep their wish lists in the $25-50 range. Clients typically ask for things like clothing, towels, sheets, blankets, body wash & lotion sets, hats & gloves, arts & crafts items, special treats, etc.
Last year in 2022, our Angels/shoppers helped us provide gifts for over 1,200 people, totaling over 3,000 gifts! We truly appreciate everyone who made this happen for our senior and adults with disabilities clients. You make us proud to be part of such a wonderful community!
