The Hatteras Island Angel Gift Program is a joint collaboration between the Dare County Department of Health & Human Services and Hatteras Island United Methodist Church to provide gifts for children in need.

The Dare County Department of Health & Human Services works with local organizations and businesses to provide referrals, administrative support and identify family needs, as well as to protect the privacy of the request. Participants must live on Hatteras Island and gifts are provided only for the child or children in the custody of the applicant.

To sponsor a child in need, pick up one or more “angels” containing the child’s requests from trees that will be on display at the Cockeyed Clam, Our Lady of the Seas Catholic Church, Cape Hatteras Baptist Church, Little Grove United Methodist Church, Hatteras United Methodist Church, Saint John United Methodist Church, Hatteras Island Christian Fellowship and Buxton United Methodist Church.
