The DePelchin Children’s Center is committed to meeting the needs of children as one of the largest providers of mental health, foster care and adoption services in Texas. Through St. Martin’s Angel Tree Project, volunteers sign up to purchase Christmas gifts for these children. Gifts should be unwrapped and new. If all items will not fit in bag, please label items with child’s name and wish list number. Please adhere as much as possible to the gift list provided and focus on needs, with a recommended donation of $100 total per child. Gift cards from Target or Walmart are welcome.
