The temperatures are still warm, but The Salvation Army of Greensboro is already thinking about Christmas!
Along with the familiar Red Kettles, the Angel Tree program is one of The Salvation Army's highest profile Christmas efforts. Angel Tree was created by The Salvation Army in 1979 by Majors Charles and Shirley White when they worked with a Lynchburg, Virginia shopping mall to provide Christmas presents for children. Since then, the tradition has expanded and now is the cornerstone of The Salvation Army's Christmas efforts.
Last year in Greensboro, The Salvation Army, along with the generous support of all who adopted Angels, assisted 3,250 area children with gifts!
