Angel Tree History
The Mary Perry Ragsdale Family YMCA began offering the community outreach program “Angel Tree” in December of 2004. This program was designed many years ago to help make Christmas brighter for families that needed a little help for the holidays. With the help of YMCA members across the country, we have helped thousands of people make Christmas wishes come true for their families.
How you can help?
Become a Gift Giver for an Angel
You can provide Christmas Joy to a deserving and needy child in your community by becoming an Angel Tree Gift Giver. How? Simply choose an Angel from the Angel Tree, take it to the Ragsdale Family YMCA Membership desk and receive the Angel’s Wish List. We ask that Gift Givers spend a minimum of $50.00 per Angel. Once your shopping is complete, just bring the wrapped gifts to the Ragsdale Family YMCA and we will make sure your Angel receives your gifts by Christmas morning.

Would you like to help the Angels on our Angel Tree, but can’t afford to spend $50.00 or just don’t have the time to shop? We have the solution for you! Donate to the Angel Tree program by selecting a donation amount from the Donation Tree or choose an amount you would like to donate and we will do the shopping for you! All donations will go to the purchase of gifts for the Angels.
