Each year on the Saturday night before Christmas Graham Memorial Presbyterian Church’s Angel Tree Program hosts children of incarcerated prisoners and their caregivers for an early “Christmas Morning” themed dinner party. The purpose is to meet and fellowship with families and present gifts from prisoners to their children. It’s a great way to let the kids know they have not been forgotten by their absent parent.  

In keeping with the theme, “Christmas breakfast” is served as dinner before gifts are given. Since it’s Coronado, who better to cater the event than the icon of breakfast in our hometown, Claytons? Well, Clayton’s not only served up their usual great breakfast for the Angel Tree kids and caregivers, they also surprised Angel Tree by donating everything so all the program funds raised could go directly to serving prisoner families. 

From the Angel Tree team at Graham our sincere gratitude goes to out to owner Mary and to Cheryl and all the “Angels at Clayton’s” who lovingly prepared a great meal. The food was great. Perhaps as importantly, your warm generosity touched a great many hearts. In our Christmas book, the angels at Tenth and Orange are definitely on the “nice list.” Clayton’s is a truly special “Coronado Treasure.”
