Angel wreaths are spread
out across town to help children in need have a
Christmas they wouldn’t otherwise have. Rendezvous
Pointe hosts the Angel Wreath program
every year with the help of businesses
and community members.
Applications were given to low-income
families through the school’s free lunch program
and the Food Basket. With parents’ help,
the children fill out three needs and three wants
for each child. The children then get two angels
each – one angel with their wants and one
with their needs. Children ages 13 to 18 can
ask for gift cards to specific stores local or online
for their wants.
When angels are disbursed on wreaths
throughout the county, members of the community
can take as many angels as they want
and pick up the gifts. Those who want to donate
money for school lunches or gift cards
may do so by calling Patty Nigbur at Rendezvous
It is asked that everything donated for the
Angel Wreath Program be unused. After the
gifts are handed in, the Rendezvous Pointe
staff will take two days to shop for the things
not purchased. If an angel is not returned, it
is considered lost and those gifts are added to
Rendezvous Pointe’s shopping list. No matter
