The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program provides new clothing and/or toys for
children. A sponsoring company or corporation places a Christmas tree in a secure, high-pedestrian traffic area or lobby. The tree is decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child who will receive the gift. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags. The toys are then delivered to the unit and later picked up by the parent to distribute to the child/children on Christmas Day.

This is the list of places that help at Christmastime.St.Vincent DePaul Catholic Charities,United Way.Some police and fire halls help so call them late November.Some churches help so first November call them.Some radio stations help call end November,listen to FM.The ones down here you got to see if they are in your city.Call city hall or go online and find out. Goodfellows, Lions Club.This one is for kids whose father or mother is in prison or jail,Angel Tree,which is through Salvation Army. Check with your city Rescue Mission Ministries.They also help with Thanksgiving and Christmas food.On internet type in Christmas help,then your city,state, (or county,state if nothing shows up on city,state). You will then see a list of places in your area that are helping with Christmas this year. Also, you can get on internet,type in "helping americans find /christmas-assistance-help". You will see more resources there, too many to list here. These places that help with Christmas will help parents and/or the children's legal guardian, only, with gifts for their children that are up to age 12. Woman in a Shoe will add more if she finds anything. Storm has not be on this site since 2010.

Ramsey County Minnesota food banks.

Food pantries in Ramsey County and Saint Paul Minnesota offer free food, meals, and other aid to families across the county. Many of the leading centers and food banks are listed below. Funding is often limited, and they are only open certain hours. Call or stop by for information on the various resources they provide.

In addition to offering food to the needy, many of the pantries can either provide, or direct people to, other local Ramsey County resources. For example, a pantry can sometimes provide clothing or personal products. Many locations also run holiday programs, such as Christmas and Thanksgiving meals and gifts. Or learn about and get help applying for other federal government food assistance programs that can help Saint Paul families, such as food stamps or WIC.
