Angel Tree graphic


The holidays are quickly approaching and while most of us are enjoying our holiday celebrations, too many children and their families are in crisis. When children are placed with relatives or family friends, it can be a struggle to make ends meet on a daily basis and “extras” at the holidays are simply out of the question. That’s why we’re asking for your help.

Contact Missie Irby to donate or to learn how to sponsor an Angel Tree at your location: or 727.479.1832

Please deliver unwrapped gifts to Missie Irby at Gulf Coast JFCS by December 18 so we can get them to the families.
