The Salvation Army's Angel Tree - Adopt a Needy Child for Christmas 14/03/2011
Make Christmas Brighter for a Child In Need Through
The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program
You can be an angel for a child living in poverty this holiday season by participating in The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program. Thousands of Tampa area angels just like you are needed to "adopt" needy children by purchasing new toys, gifts and clothing for them.
How you can be an angel:
- Host an Angel Tree decorated with angel tag ornaments representing needy children. You tell us how many needy children you'd like to "adopt" for Christmas, and we will provide you with paper angels including each child's first name, age, clothing & shoe sizes, favorite color and gift ideas. Angel tags will be available in late October.
- Host a collection drive for new toys and gifts for children ages 0-15
- Donate funds to help The Salvation Army purchase gifts for Forgotten Angels.
- Volunteer at our Holiday Toyshop to help prepare gifts for distribution to Angel Tree Families
Volunteer at the Angel Tree Holiday Toyshop
Throughout the month of December, The Salvation Army needs hundreds of volunteers on weekdays, weeknights and Saturdays to organize Angel Tree gifts and prepare the Holiday Toyshop. We also need volunteers each day to help distribute gifts to needy families at our Holiday Toyshop, located at University Mall.
Large groups of volunteers are needed to:
Prepare Gifts for Distribution
Distribute Gifts to Needy Families
