If you find yourself alone or would love to partake in a Holiday Experience, please join us from 1pm – 3pm at The Salvation Army, 400 S. Harrison Street, Amarillo (Enter at 5th and Harrison door).  We will serve a restaurant style dining atmosphere complete with hostesses, a sit-down dinner, servers, and great table conversation. We are in need of home baked desserts. On Christmas Day we love for those who dine with us to have options just as most of us do in our own homes during the holidays. If you can’t give of your time that day maybe you can help out by baking a dessert! We would like to have all desserts turned in by 5pm Saturday December 24, 2015.

We Believe That Every Child Deserves A Little Christmas

The Salvation Army has offered holiday shoppers the opportunity to make a child’s Christmas dream come true by adopting children through our Angel Tree Program. Each Angel hanging represented a needy child in the Amarillo area who needed to be adopted. The Angel Tree contained about 2,000 Angels draping from our branches this year. All the Angels have been adopted from our trees, now the last step is getting the Angels all returned back to the Angel Tree to prepare for Distribution of the gifts. All gifts must be returned by December 15th unwrapped.
