The Davidson Police Department is currently kicking off its annual Angel Tree Program, a tradition which spans more than twenty years.
“We are able to continue this program because of the generosity and care of the Davidson Police Department, Davidson residents, local centers of worship, and Davidson businesses who support us in this endeavor,” said Chief of Police Penny Dunn. The program has historically provided toys and clothing for children in need but expanded in recent years to include providing elder and disabled residents in need with gifts of grocery and gas gift cards.
After the severity of the COVID-19 virus in 2020, the Angel Tree Program has adapted to work through in-person contact, by phone, or digitally through email or our website. Those interested in participating, either by becoming a sponsor or by making a monetary donation, are asked to contact the Davidson Police Department at 704-892-5131 during normal business hours. Donations can also be accepted directly on our website here.
So that designated police staff have ample time to match sponsors with children, and sponsors have enough time to both purchase and drop off their gifts, the deadline to sign up to participate is December 7, 2021.
