The Salvation Army of Wake County is pleased to announce that over 7,900 children signed up for its Christmas Cheer Program last week and those children will be helped this year through the annual Salvation Army Angel Tree program which, with generous help from the community, gives children in need the Christmas of their dreams. Each family registered for the program is screened through a process that helps verify their needs.
Angel Trees will be around the community beginning Friday, November 8 and run through December 13. On each tree are printed angels that have the name, age, and gift suggestions for a child “angel” registered in the program. Each angel is ready for members of the community to “adopt” (purchase gifts) for Christmas.
Angel Tree locations include:
* Crabtree Valley Mall, near the Kanki entrance, lower level
* Triangle Town Center, upper level Macy's entrance near Reed's Jewelers
“The Salvation Army is grateful for the community and community partners. Because of their generosity, we can serve residents in need at Christmas and throughout the year with our social service programs,” said Major Al Newsome, area commander of The Salvation Army of Wake and Lee Counties.
