PROSPER (November 17, 2022) In the spirit of giving, the Town of Prosper is partnering with local charities and non-profits in and around Prosper to bring holiday cheer to those in need. Each year, the Town participates in these local events to help enrich the lives of those in our community. Help us continue to spread the holiday cheer by donating to any of our partners below to assist our neighbors in need in the following ways:

Prosper Ladies Association’s Prosper Christmas Angels
Members of Prosper Fire Rescue, Prosper Police Department and Prosper ISD Police Department are once again teaming up with the Prosper Ladies Association’s Prosper Christmas Angels program. The Prosper Christmas Angels program partners with local volunteers and community groups to grant holiday wishes for children and families in need within the Prosper Independent School District. Visit the Angel Tree, located in the Prosper Town Hall lobby, to scan a virtual tag that represents a child along with their wish lists. The tag for a child will include their age, gender, clothing size and wishes. Contributors can also sign up for one or more tags from the prosperchristmasangels.com website and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or family. Toys and clothing will be hand-delivered on December 10 by members of Prosper Fire Rescue, Prosper Police Department, Prosper ISD Police and the Prosper Ladies Association to local families in need right here in Prosper. Silver Angels donations can also be made on the website for senior citizens in our community who need some extra assistance will also receive items such as groceries, bills or prescriptions.
