Community Angels give donations to Faith in Action as a holiday gift in honor of or in memory of someone special.

People interested in supporting Faith in Action for Cass County’s services to people in need can make a donation and have an ornament placed on the Angel Tree in the office in Hackensack.

Donations made to Faith in Action before the holidays can be dedicated “in honor of” or “in memory of” someone. These dedications are written on angel ornaments that decorate the tree.
