Every child registered through The Salvation Army Angel Tree Program is guaranteed to receive gifts, but each year the number of children registered outnumbers the amount of children adopted by the community. The toys collected through toy drives provide gifts for children that were not sponsored. Many thanks to WCNC for helping to make this possible.
