Families who are struggling to meet the financial demands of day-to-day life question how they might provide a gift or two for their children on Christmas Day. Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. And thanks to supporters of The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, thousands of children will find this waiting under their Christmas trees this year.
The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides new clothing or toys for children of needy families through the support of donors. Found in local companies and corporations, Angel Trees are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child in need of presents. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags. Please consider hosting a Teen Angel Tree. One of the greatest needs in our city is to provide toys to teens in our community.
Angel Tree tag distribution began on November 1st and the toys will be collected on Dec. 9th through Dec. 12th. We ask that the toys are new and unwrapped. Toys can be delivered to our Divisional Headquarters at 1130 Hampton Ave St. Louis, MO 63139 or you can schedule to have the toys picked up at your office on Dec 9th through Dec 12th.
