Facebook inspired angel tree program

SALISBURY, Md. – Two groups in Salisbury, the Fenix Youth Project and Delmarva COVID Crafters, have teamed up to create their own Angel tree program.
Their goal is to help families in need during the holiday season.

This project all started on Facebook. A volunteer with Fenix Project had noticed that many families in the area are struggling financially, and they wanted to help.

With care for kids already being provided by both organizations , they’ve collectively adopted 27 families and Fenix Youth project has adopted an additional 12.
The groups will be providing toys and clothing for these families.

“This program is really a direct response to the need that is growing, and we want everybody to have a holiday spirit, so this angel tree has 27 families, but there is still a need for more, so this is just one response to something we saw on Facebook,” says Director of Fenix Youth Project, Amber Green.

If you would like to donate to any of the families on the list, please visit this website for the sign-up sheet. You can drop gifts off at the Fenix Youth Center, 239 Florida Ave. Salisbury, Maryland.
