According to The Salvation Army of North Texas’s Senior Director of Community Relations Christina Cavalier,
“As North Texans prepare to face one of the most challenging holiday seasons, The Salvation Army of North Texas is seeking Christmas gifts for tens of thousands of angels who have not yet been adopted through the Angel Tree Program.
“For nearly four decades, The Salvation Army’s time-honored tradition, the Angel Tree Program, has made Christmas bright for North Texans in need. The challenges that those combatting poverty, addiction and homelessness will be especially great this year as they continue to recover from the economic impacts of the pandemic. Hundreds of thousands of North Texans are behind on rent or mortgage payments, experiencing food insecurity, and having difficulty paying bills.
“The Christmas season is a critical time period for both our mission and raising funds that support our work throughout the year. We thank North Texas for their generosity and assistance in transforming the lives of those combatting poverty, addiction, and homelessness in our community.”
“Here’s how to adopt Angels for our Angel Tree Program this year…
“The Salvation Army has updated the Angel Tree program to make it easier and safer than ever to give a gift. The last day to adopt an Angel is Friday, December 3.
- “We’ve made it simpler and safer to adopt an Angel from The Salvation Army Angel Tree this year through virtual adoptions, drive-thru gift drop-offs and donations.
- “To adopt an angel online, please visit us/ntxangel.
- “If you’d like to financially help support our Angel Tree program, please consider making a donation here.
“A full list of angels and additional Angel Tree details can be found at salvationarmynorthtexas.org.
“There are many other ways to help in addition to the Angel Tree Program. To help those in your community:
- “Donate! Please consider donating in person or online at SalvationArmyNorthTexas.org.
- “Register to ring the bell at a Red Kettle near you or start a Virtual Red Kettle.
- “Sign up to volunteer at a food pantry in your community to help distribute groceries to our vulnerable neighbors.”
“Through the Angel Tree Program, The Salvation Army provides Christmas gifts and necessities for thousands of children, seniors, and special needs adults throughout North Texas. The last day to adopt an Angel is Friday, December 3. Donors can drop off gifts at the drive-through locations on Friday, December 3, and Saturday, December 4, between 11:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Visit salvationarmynorthtexas.org to see more details.”
