COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS: Angel Tree

How does The Salvation Army find the children whose names are on the Angel Tree? The families of these children have applied for Christmas assistance from The Salvation Army. Some are referred by other agencies. All children are ages 12 and under.

 

Are all the children from West Palm Beach County? Yes. This year we will provide assistance for more than 10,000 children and their families in Palm Beach County.

 

How does The Salvation Army determine if the families are truly needy? Each family is screened as carefully as possible by our staff caseworkers without regard to race or religious preference. The federal guidelines for poverty are a tool used in this process. Referrals are taken from religious organizations, civic associations, H.R.S., schools and similar organizations. We cross check with other helping agencies for duplications.

 

How much should I spend? We suggest that you spend between $25.00 and $50.00 per child. We encourage each donor to purchase at least one toy suggestion and one outfit.

 

What guarantee do I have that the gifts bought for an Angel get to the intended child? Each child has a specific code number which is labeled on the gifts as they are returned. This code number correlates with a family's file at the office. When a family comes to pick up gifts, the family's code number is matched with it's specific gifts purchased for that child.

 

What happens to the Angels not selected from the tree? All children who do not receive their gifts through an ANGEL TREE will receive new toys from our Christmas Toy Shop from monies donated or collected through our KETTLE effort.

 

Why must the gifts be unwrapped? To ensure that each child receives appropriate and safe NEW gifts. Also, when the mother/father comes to pick up the gifts they will more than likely open them to assure that it is appropriate for her/his child. You may include boxes and wrapping paper so that the parent may wrap the gifts if desired.
