Due to the pandemic, this year’s holiday circumstances have looked different for many Southwest Florida families. But there are different options for giving back to the community. You can now shop for children at from the convenience of your home or office or be a part of the Forgotten Angel program.

Unfortunately, each year 15-20% of the angel tags that are distributed are not returned with gifts. These tags are assigned to an age group and gender, and convey the wishes of children for Christmas presents.

The Angel Tree program helps 4,000 children in Lee County experience the hope and joy of the holidays, giving them something to open on Christmas morning, and the need is predicted to increase by 155% this year.

To guarantee each of your angels gets their gifts, they must be returned to the Angel Tree warehouse by Tuesday, Dec. 1.

The warehouse is located at 15600 San Carlos Blvd. in the Gulf Point Square Shopping Plaza and will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m to 4 p.m.
