Give a Gift through our Angel Tree Program to Help Families in Davidson
The Davidson Police started the “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 2020
As of November 24, the Town of Davidson Police Department is in the process of kicking off it's annual Angel Tree Program. Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, town hall remains closed to the public, and in order to minimize and prevent the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Angel Tree Program will predominantly be coordinated via email and phone. If you are interested in sponsoring a child (or children) or would like to make a monetary donation to the program, please call the Davidson Police Department at 704-892-5131 during regular business hours no later than December 11, 2020. This will ensure that dedicated police staff have adequate time to match sponsors with children and also, that sponsors have enough time to purchase and return their gifts.
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!
