Project Angel Tree
During November, more than 60 children are identified as children in need through the Anchorage School District Child in Transition Program. The public is encouraged to visit the “Angel Tree”, a decorated Christmas tree in the Anchorage Police Department Lobby and select an angel off of the tree that includes the name, age and Christmas gift wish of a child in need in Anchorage. Members of the public purchase gifts and brings them unwrapped back to the APD front counter in the lobby with the angel. Volunteers wrap the presents and APD officers deliver them to the families in time for Christmas.
