Apple & Angel Programs

Dear Business & Community Partners:

Thank you for taking an interest in providing support for the foster and adopted children in our community. We sincerely appreciate all that you do for them.

The Pasco County Foster and Adoptive Parent Association would like to invite you to partner with us this year during our Angel Program. Our program puts the first name of each child on an Angel with their shoe and clothing sizes along with 3 wishes from that child.

You as a sponsor try your best to fill the list for that child. We also offer several different ways to help sponsor the children. Please review the list and let us know how your organization would like to get involved. All donations are tax deductible for your business or organization. It is our goal to have every child sponsored for Christmas. Currently there are over 500 children in foster and adopted homes in Pasco and Pinellas Counties. You as a local business or community partner can help in several ways.

List of ways that you can help:

◦Your business can set up a tree that we can hang the Angels on so your employees or patrons can sponsor a child

◦You can make a monetary donation

◦Your business can choose a certain number of Angels to sponsor as a group

◦You can buy a special gift for a few children

◦You can take up a collection and buy gift cards

◦You can sponsor a teen oriented gift drive

◦You can hold a special party for a certain number of children

As you can see, there are several ways that you can help. Most of these children do not know or understand the true meaning of the holiday season. Some have never experienced a happy, safe exciting Christmas.

The Angel Program has been a very successful event over the past 10 years, and we would like to thank all of you who see the need and make it happen for these children.

Please contact Lori Mitchell at (813) 929-8544 or (727) 992-0432 if you have any questions regarding the program or to arrange the details of your sponsorship.

Thank you for your time and may God bless you as you reach out to others in need.
