THE SALVATION ARMY ANGEL TREE PROGRAM

storm747 started this conversation

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.  http://www.salvationarmyusa.org/

I know this is kind of late but I signed up for help through a different organization and last minute just said they cannot help! I am a single mother of 3, I am struggling bad right now because of health issues, My job cut my hours extremely because of the off season, and on top of that I have been having to miss because of Dr appts back to back, I am only 27 and have heart issues also just finding out that I have a tumor in my left breast, the last month has been crazy and hard. Also now Christmas being a week away now I dont know what to do for christmas I feel so bad for my children. Also because they are so caring they said mom its ok as long as we can have a nice dinner and family time that is what christams is about, it breaks my heart and also makes me very proud of them at the same time. Please help, any ideas anything! Thank you

Try 211.org or 2 hands.org.....Check santasearch.org...

This was posted on here a couple days ago from a social worker......

To Everyone who missed the Toys for Tots sign up for your city and state if you check online next week thru their website there is usually a specific day and time posted around Dec.20th for people who missed you will have to search your specific zip code for the location but it is availible in many states...also tell them to call ur school district and ask about programs, also try firehalls, police stations foodbanks and churches...they need to call around diligently. God Bless u!
