Angel Tree

Enriching lives through holiday tradition.

What is the Angel Tree?

The Excel Society’s Angel tree is an annual holiday tradition where we provide gifts to the less fortunate people in our care who may not have loved ones to spend the holidays with.

How Does it work?

Every December we send out our paper angels to people in our care, so they may write down their holiday wish. Then, with the help of our team and donors, we ensure that their wish is fulfilled.

This gift is then wrapped and given to our clients with a new paper angel attached to the top so that they may also have a holiday season that is filled with joy and connection.
