The Salvation Army Angel Tree Kick Off
Published: November 7, 2007 | 6814th good news item since 2003
This Thursday, November 8 at 5:00 p.m., the Salvation Army will kick-off its annual Angel Tree program. Dan Brennan and Shelby Mitchell of WKSJ will emcee the event which takes place in Colonial Bel Air Mall between the mall entrance to Dillard’s and the main entrance to the Mall.
The evening will feature Christmas carols by Government Street Christian School kindergarten choir and holiday selections from the children of the Salvation Army hand bell chorus.
Over 3,600 needy children from Mobile and Baldwin counties are counting on you to adopt them for Christmas.
Participation in the program is fun and easy. Angel Tree volunteers are ready to help you in choose an angel. The rules are simple: only new clothing and gifts should be given to your Angel. Each Angel’s profile contains information on the child’s age, size, gender and special Christmas wish. Use the information as a guide but remember you do not have to purchase the toy listed but it should be an age appropriate gift.
It is up to you to determine how much you care to spend, but the Salvation Army suggests spending no more than $30 to $60 per Angel. If you have more than $100 dollars to spend, we recommend dividing your money up and adopting more than one Angel this Christmas.
