Give a Gift through our Angel Tree Program to Help Families in Davidson
The Davidson Police started its Angel Tree Program to support Davidson families in need more than 20 years ago.
“Each year we are able to continue this program is a testament to the traditions of caring and giving 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.
How to participate in 2021
As of November 5, the Town of Davidson Police Department is in the process of kicking off it's annual Angel Tree Program. After the severity of the COVID-19 virus in 2020, the 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 portal here Version OptionsAngel TreeHeadline.
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.
Call the Davidson Police Department at 704-892-5131 if you have any questions.
2020 presented several challenges this year due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, but Davidson Police Department personnel Lorena Arce and Angela Ranson took those on and quickly resolved them. “Our concerns were unwarranted because Lorena and Angela are extremely dedicated to the children and families of Davidson,” said Chief Penny Dunn. The Angel Tree remote application and sponsorship was extremely successful in the new virtual format, and the Angel Tree was able to assist 64 children and 26 families with generous donations of toys, clothing and money to purchase items. Many, many thanks to those from the local community who helped make this possible!
