Angel Giving Tree

The Angel Giving Tree Program

The Angel Tree program provides underprivileged children and seniors with holiday gifts and proof that someone cares.

This program relies on the selfless giving and support of the community to bring joy and happiness to those less fortunate during the holiday season. No child chooses to live in poverty and no senior ever expects to rely on the goodwill of others. The Angel Tree program provides clothing, special-needs gifts and other wished-for items such as toys.


How does it work?

During a screening process to verify need, Angels (children ages 15 and under and seniors ages 62 and older) are qualified for the program. Angels are assigned a tag listing their name, age, gender, clothing size and the item(s) they would like or need. During the holiday season, these tags are added to the Angel Tree at the South Plains Mall. In addition to this tree, many corporations have Angel Trees at their offices.


How can I participate?

The 2012 Angel Tree Program officially kicks off on November 16 and runs through December 14. Angels can be adopted from:
