The Salvation Army 2018 Angel Tree Program is open now. SA believes that every child deserves to know the joy of a new toy or clothing, and get to share those special moments with family at Christmas. To help make the holidays brighter for the less fortunate, The Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama provides Christmas gifts to families in need throughout Mobile & Baldwin Counties. In recent years, they have provided gifts for approximately 2,500 local children through the Angel Tree program.
There are several ways the community can help with Angel Tree, and they are listed as follows:
– Adopt an individual Angel from trees at most Wal-Mart Vision Centers (typically begins after Thanksgiving)
– Sponsor an Angel Tree (10 or more angels) for your business or organization
– Host a toy/gift drive for the “Forgotten Angels” – angels who do not get adopted or whose gifts do not get returned.
For more information on hosting an Angel Tree or Toy Drive, contact Major Jennifer Richmond, Associate Area Commander at Jennifer.Richmond@USS.SalvationArmy.org or 251.438.1625.
