Christmas Dinner At The Salvation Army
No One Has To Be Alone For The Holidays
The Salvation Army invites the Amarillo community to join us for Christmas dinner on Sunday December 25, 2016. 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.
Remember, if you are looking for a great place to spend Christmas, we would love for you to be a part of our Holiday Experience at The Salvation Army of Amarillo. No one has to be alone for the holidays.

We NEED Volunteers
Help Us With The Last Step To Make Christmas Happen
It’s time for our last step to complete our Christmas Assistance Program….distributing gifts to those who wouldn’t have a Christmas without The Salvation Army Angel Tree program. We have almost 2,000 children with thousands of gifts to distribute. We need as many organizations, church groups, small business office personnel, etc. to help organize and distribute all of the gifts received from our generous community. On our Distribution Days alone we need a minimum of 50 volunteers PER day. Lastly, after all the gifts have been distributed to families we need help cleaning up!
We need people to put bikes together, organize clothes, toys and generally make the Rex Baxter Building a professional distribution center.

Last Day For The Salvation Army Angel Tree &
We Need Volunteers To Distribute Gifts
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.

Return Your Angels
Chick-Fil-A Joins The Salvation Army Once Again
The Salvation Army has all angels adopted but not all have been returned. The Angel Tree closes on Thursday, December 15, 2016. We still have almost 300 angels out of about 2,000 angels that still need to be returned this year. Chick-Fil-A is helping to make sure that happens and that no Angels are forgotten. Tuesday, December 13th, 2016, from 4:00pm-6:00pm, the Chick-Fil-A cow will be at the Westgate Mall Angel Tree. When an Angel is returned, the person returning the Angel will receive a Chick-Fil-A gift card to be redeemed at The Westgate Mall.
Remember, come support The Salvation Army and return your Angels today to receive a FREE item from Chick-Fil-A at the Westgate Mall! Please help us make sure that no Angel is forgotten.
