Angel Tree

More than Presents

Angel Tree registration has ended for 2013. Check back in August 2014 for registration information.

Looking for help with presents this year?* The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is for children ages 0 to 12 years old in Mecklenburg and Union counties. With the help of numerous media partners and generous members of our community, The Salvation Army provides gifts to thousands of children each year. 

How to register. This year parents or caregivers can register children from October 14 to November 8 at The Salvation Army Christmas Center, located at 801 East Arrowood Road, Charlotte, NC 28217. To be eligible for Angel Tree, applicants must show proof of:

  • Residency in Mecklenburg or Union counties
  • Income falling within 125% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines 
  • Child's date of birth

*Please note:  When you register your child, you will be asked for 3 gift suggestions valuing $50 or less. The Salvation Army does not guarantee the quantity or quality of gifts you may receive; all gifts are given through the generosity of people in our community. You will also need to know your children's sizes in pants, coats, shirts, and shoes. 


Are you a senior citizen needing help this season? The Salvation Army also provides help for seniors who may be in need of hope this holiday season through the Angel Tree's sister program, Silver Bells. learn more
