ANGEL BASKETS IS A DIRECT LINK BETWEEN THOSE WHO WANT TO HELP AND THOSE WHO NEED HELP THE MOST: LOCAL FAMILIES STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY

Angel Baskets has grown from a single holiday program founded in 1981 to provide food and gifts for eight local families to four programs serving hundreds of financially strapped families in San Miguel County, the west-end of Montrose County and the Dove Creek area of Dolores County.   Through its many volunteers, Angel Baskets has successfully established unique and direct channels of distribution to qualified families who need help.   Angel Baskets is an all volunteer, 501 (c) 3 organization with no overhead expenses and no paid staff.  100% of the donations received have a direct impact on the lives of the families we serve.

Our Mission is to provide food, clothing and necessities to those in our community who are struggling financially.

I say this just to remind you that some of us are good people who have just fallen on hard times. God has used you to help provide for us. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!  I can never repay you for your kindness so I'm asking God too. Bless you all!
