Angel Tree is a community project that provides new clothes to low income children of Menard County. Children aged 0-15 years receive clothing while teenagers ages 16 to 18 years of age receive a gift card of a small denomination and hats, gloves, and socks. All participants of the program are residents of the Athens, Greenview and PORTA School Districts.
Angel Tree partners with the Menard County Jaycees, Athen’s Lions Club and Greenview Fire Department and Daisy's Angels to distribute clothes and toys to support around 500 children who are registered for the program during Christmas. Local businesses and churches host angel trees for people to adopt an angel!
