How can you help?

All over Anderson County Angels will be displayed on Christmas Trees.

These are actual children in our county who need an extra blessing this Christmas. Many families who struggle to make ends meet, also struggle to provide Christmas for their families. Every parent is interviewed. We look at income, budget, and refer to appropriate services.


In Anderson County The Salvation Army partners with Toys For Tots, and combines efforts to avoid duplication, and make the largest impact possible.

You can adopt and angel at one of these locations this Christmas season.

The Salvation Army's Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability that repeats generation after generation. It seeks to address the root causes of poverty in addition to The Army's history of compassionate serving. By helping families overcome challenges like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, we can lead families down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency.
