Angel to Angel

 

Eighteen years ago a Southwest Youth and Family Services’ staff member had a dream to provide Christmas gifts for the children and youth who would be in our Shelter for Christmas. The establishment of the Angel II Angel has more than fulfilled this dream.

Angel II Angel provides holiday gifts for children who would not otherwise receive gifts during the Christmas season by partnering with community members who adopt an Angel. Since its inception, Angel II Angel has provided Christmas gifts to more than 3,900 needy children across Grady and Caddo Counties. This has been possible only through the generous support of our community.

Angel II Angel works in conjunction with the Department of Human Services, Salvation Army, and Santa’s Workshop to ensure that all needs are met, and no duplications are made.
