Gifts for Angels
Each year in November, a Christmas tree appears in the hallway leading to the parlor. This tree is covered with angel tags containing the information for a child/parent for a gift for that person. Members of the congregation choose a tag and then bring that gift to the church. We provide 10 gifts for each recipient in need. The gifts are all delivered to Safe Haven of Greater Waterbury.
This is our Adopt-A-Family program in conjunction with Safe Haven. Save Haven provides emergency shelter and free comprehensive support services to victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assaults. North Church adopts 2-3 families each year and provides these families with a Christmas they would otherwise not have.
