The Salvation Army has registered nearly 9,000 children from Wake County to be a part of the Christmas Cheer Program where they received new clothing, toys, and stockings. The Angel Tree specifically focuses on fulfilling the biggest need: new clothing. See below for ways to help a child in need.
Adopt an Angel
Be a part of making children’s Christmas wishes come true by being involved with our Angel Tree!
To help the nearly 9,000 children, you can purchase clothing items for ages 0-12 years old and deliver them to the Christmas Center at 2116-D New Bern (the old Winn Dixie inside Longview Shopping Center). December 17-19 from 8:30am- 4pm.
If you do most of your holiday shopping online, you'll love our Angel Tree "Shopping Cart!" You can provide for children in need without ever leaving your computer. Click here to "shop" for an angel today!
Host a Clothing Drive
New clothing is by far the biggest need during the Christmas Season. Children in the Christmas Cheer Program are guaranteed new toys, but are not guaranteed new clothing, unless someone adopts them. Help clothe a child in need by hosting a drive to collect new clothing for angels who are not adopted through Angel Tree. Download our Angel Tree Clothing Flyers to get started!
Not sure if you can adopt or host a drive? Even donating a new pair of jeans, one new shirt or new pair of shoes will make a difference!
