Salvation Army Angel Tree Program

Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. And thanks to supporters of The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, local children will find a gift or two under their Christmas trees this year. The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides new clothing or toys for children of needy families through the support of donors. Found this year at Oxford’s Quintard Mall. Angel Trees are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child in need of presents. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags. So help local families who are struggling to meet the financial demands of day-to-day life and who are questioning how they might provide a gift for their children on Christmas Day. More than 350 more angels still need to be adopted. The Salvation Army also needs support from the community for their Kettle Campaign. It takes about 10 people to adequately man a kettle. Roberts says 82-cents of every dollar donated goes to a program at the Anniston Salvation Army. He says all of their programs are worthwhile, but with the winter season comes a greater need for their shelter program. The Salvation Army Anniston is located at 420 Noble Street. You can contact the facility by calling 256.236.5643.
