Every Christmas, Second Chances SA teams up with generous donors, churches and community clubs to bring joy to over 550 children and young people with a parent in prison here in South Australia.
Christmas Angels is a special program – connecting and strengthening the bond between children, families and imprisoned parents.
Each donation of $40 enables us to buy two brand new presents for each child to receive from their imprisoned parent on their Christmas Family Day.
This year, Christmas will be coming early to the children and families of inmates at Cadell Training Centre. On December 9, a team from Second Chances SA will be delivering a trailer load of custom-picked presents for dads to give to their children in person and share a special moment of joy with their children.
“My three daughters love the presents they received. It means a lot to them knowing that their father (me) gives them Birthday and Christmas presents.”
-A grateful dad
Christmas Angels is not just about presents. It’s about keeping families connected and reminding children they are loved and not forgotten.
