Angel Tree program collects gifts for kids with a parent in prison

The Fresno BeeDecember 11, 2013 

Assemblymember Jim Patterson, R-Fresno, will gather gifts Thursday night during the Assembly District Christmas Open House for a program that benefits Central Valley children with at least one parent in prison.

The national Angel Tree program was designed to give parents an opportunity to connect with their child at Christmas. Parents pick a gift donated through the program, and it is given to the child with a note from the child's mom or dad.

Patterson will collect gifts from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at his district office at 6245 N. Fresno St., Suite #106.
