Salvation Army Gearing Up For Angel Tree Distribution
After the challenge of meeting high demands for Christmas assistance this year, The Salvation Army is busy preparing for tomorrow’s start of the Angel Tree Distribution. After the final review, over 300 Angels’ gifts were not returned. Volunteers are busy trying to put gifts together for these forgotten Angels.
This year, The Salvation Army will assist 5,445 individuals with Christmas, which is a 97% increase over five years ago. All gifts will be distributed this Tuesday – Wednesday, Dec. 17 and 18. Gifts will be distributed from The Salvation Army Angel Tree Warehouse located at 5001 Covington Street, off of Rossville Blvd.
Distribution times for both centers will be 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM.
