Angel Tree

"When you pick up an Angel Tree tag, you and The Salvation Army brighten Christmas for a child in need"

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 clothing and toys for children at Christmas time.  Since then, the tradition has expanded and now is the cornerstone of The Salvation Army's Christmas efforts.
