The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides new clothing and/or toys for children of needy families. Each Angel Tree is decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age, and gender of a child who is in need of a gift. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.
The Purpose of Angel Tree
- To provide toys/gifts for individuals in need;
- To eliminate the cost of toys/gifts that would normally be part of The Salvation Army’s holiday expenses, thus making more funding available for emergency needs such as food, clothing, shelter, rental assistance, fuel assistance, etc.;
- To offer the opportunity for supporters to assist someone in need by selecting an “angel” and purchasing a special gift for that “angel;”
- To offer supporters the opportunity to provide items needed by The Salvation Army for the holiday season, as well as throughout the year.
Angel tags are available at all WingHouse locations. Contact your local WingHouse for further information on the program and toy drop off deadlines.
