How the Trees Work

  • How the Trees Work
  • There are over 20 trees located around the county at rec centers, police stations and businesses.
  • Choose an Angel Ornament on the tree and then shop for the child that is described on the back
  • Purchase a toy, clothing or books for your Angel
  • You don’t need an ornament to shop. you are welcome to purchase gifts for children ages 0-17
  • Return the unwrapped gift and the ornament to your local police department, fire station, sheriff’s office or either of the FIRC Offices in Silverthorne or Breckenridge
  • Unwrapped gifts must be turned in by Friday, December 9 at 5 p.m.
  • Adopt an Angel, is a Summit County-based program that is in its 22nd year. On December 14, 2016, we’ll transform the Silverthorne Pavilion into a toy factory, where thousands of gifts will be given to pre-approved families and children. Santa’s helpers will be on hand to spread cheer and help families pick their gifts. Any remaining toys will be given to local nonprofits that work with kids.

    Last year, Adopt an Angel allowed approximately 562 children and 254 families to enjoy a brighter holiday season. Due to the program’s overwhelming success and a need for broader assistance, the Town of Silverthorne and the Silverthorne Police Department are transitioning the coordination of the Adopt an Angel program over to the Family & Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC).

    The staff at FIRC is honored to be working closely with the TOS and SPD to support this important community program. Our goal is to create a more sustainable program that can help even more local families.

    FIRC is accepting financial donations to help us purchase toys and clothing for children this holiday season. We also have trees with angels on them throughout the community where you can purchase a gift for a certain child. Gifts need to be returned to FIRC by December 9.
