The Colson Center’s roots come from time our founder spent in jail. It was 50 years ago that “Watergate” broke into our cultural lexicon, which, in turn, led Chuck Colson to a stint behind bars.  

After he got out, he went back to prison, not just once, but again and again to minister to those paying for their crimes. This wasn’t because he thought they were innocent, but because these were human beings who should be treated with dignity and given the love of Christ. 

Every year, our sister organization Prison Fellowship offers a way to spread some Christmas cheer to the children of those incarcerated. It’s called Angel Tree. With your help, Prison Fellowship works with local churches and other organizations to provide gifts to kids at Christmas on behalf of their parents. So, in the midst of the holiday haste, give some time, and maybe some cash, to help kids and their parents stay connected, in Jesus’ name.
