Welcome Friends of the Angel

Friends of the Angel is a nonprofit volunteer group seeking to honor and remember loved ones no longer with us. Formed in 2007, we organize events around Maple Grove Arboretum’s Christmas Box Angel of Hope statue to provide healing, hope and fellowship to those who have experienced the death of a child at any age. Throughout the year, we plan gatherings to help create new memories while honoring old ones.

“The deepest sense of hope often springs from the hardest lessons in life. It is in the darkest skies that stars are best seen.” – Richard Paul Evans
