We Believe That Every Child Deserves A Little Christmas

 

_dsc6718

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.
