How Does the Angel Tree Program Work?
The sponsoring company puts up a Christmas tree in a secure, high-pedestrian traffic area or lobby. The decorated tree features numbered paper angel or bear tags with the age and gender of a child to be served. An appropriate display provides information to employees and the public. Employees and the general public remove one tag (or more) from the tree and purchase gift(s). The Salvation Army is then responsible for gift distribution in conjunction with a food and meal distribution program.
The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is a sharing opportunity that allows the donor to enter into a personal giving program with a deserving child.
Children in need of new toys this Christmas are selected by The Salvation Army workers from the most needy. You can buy one or more gifts for as many children as you desire. You can use one or more tags. No guns, knives, or other inappropriate items.
New toys can be brought to 2625 Potter Street, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. or dropped off at a participating Angel Tree business.
