To eliminate the cost of toys/gifts that people may use funds needed for the household in order to provide gifts for their children.
Each year, sponsors, ranging from neighborhood associations to private companies, volunteer to place Angel Trees in secure, high-pedestrian traffic areas within their community, organization or office. Many sponsors provide a tree as an added donation, along with promotional materials to inform their community, members or staff of the program, along with confidential information about the children who will benefit from their generosity. The sponsoring organizations also serves as a collection place for the gifts and provides secure storage until a volunteer from The Salvation Army can collect the gifts for distribution.
Volunteers are needed throughout the season to assist with sorting gifts and preparing the Angel Tree warehouse for gift distributions. Click here for Online Volunteer Signup Information. Angel Tree gifts lists will be available for adoption by November 1st and gifts will need to be delivered back to The Salvation Army warehouse by December 1st. Instructions on shopping for Angel Tree can be found here. For more information, contact Holly McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org or 409-763-1691.
