Angel Gift Program Partnership Seeks Sponsors, Donors and Applicants

Post Date:09/16/2016 10:00 a.m.
The Outer Banks Woman's Club is seeking sponsors and donors for their Angel Gift Program, now in its 29th year. The club partners in a collaborative effort with the Dare County Department of Health and Human Services, whose role is the screening of applicants. 

Residents interested in applying for assistance through the Angel Gift Program need to apply in person at the Dare County Department of Health and Human Services, Social Services Division, Manteo Campus. Applications will be taken from October 24, 2016 - November 10, 2016. In order to best serve all residents of Dare County, applications will be taken at the Dare County Baum Center, in Kill Devil Hills, on October 26, 2016 and November 2, 2016 from 9 am until 12 pm. This is the ONLY application period. 

Families eligible for Angel Gift Program who live north of the Oregon Inlet must be below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level (more information is available at http://tiny.cc/r3vuey) provide proof of income, and a completed application. Due to increased participation, priority will be given to eligible families who were not assisted last year. Additional families will be included, as funds permit, on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The continued success of this program would not be possible without the generous support and funding provided by businesses, organizations, and individuals from Dare County and beyond. 

For more information regarding sponsorship or donation opportunities, please call the Outer Banks Woman's Club at 252.305.4214. For questions regarding applications, please call Leigh Bracy with Social Services at 252.475.5566.
