The Salvation Army of Paris has announced the launch of its annual Angel Tree program for Christmas 2022.
The Angel Tree program is one of the Salvation Army’s most famous Christmas initiatives, along with the Salvation Army’s iconic Red Kettle campaign. With the help of generous donors and the Salvation Army, her more than 100,000 children in Texas, filling a Dallas Cowboys stadium, will experience the joy of opening presents on Christmas morning.
The Salvation Army Major Guy Watts said, “The Angel Tree program will provide toys and clothing to children and families who may be struggling to find Christmas gifts this year. Thanks to the generosity of society’s donors and corporations.” “Angels can be adopted by community members and businesses that do little to bring the magic and messages of Christmas to those in need.”
The Salvation Army Angel Tree is located in the Salvation Army building at 350 W. Kaufman Street. The tree is decorated with paper angels, each representing a child or an elderly person who would not be able to receive gifts at Christmas without this program.
“We are eternally grateful for the generous support of the communities and local businesses working with The Salvation Army at Christmas and all year round,” said Watts. There are also opportunities for groups, or churches, to host an Angel Tree at your location.
Angels can be adopted at The Salvation Army at 350 West Kaufman for the rest of November through December.
Last year, 503 angels were available for adoption in Paris. This year, local Salvation Army officials expect 2,000 children to be enrolled in the program. Gift distribution will take place on December 17th at The Salvation Army, 350 West Kaufman, Paris, TX 75460. Volunteers are needed to help sort and deliver items to families who come to collect on distribution days.
“You can also buy Angel Tree gifts from the comfort of your own home. Thanks to Walmart, donors can now purchase Salvation Army Angel Tree gifts through Registry for Good,” said Watts. “Walmart delivers these items directly to the Salvation Army.
