News10 has partnered with the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program to help make the season bright for families in need. Last year the Angel Tree Program assisted more than 22,000 families and 9,000 children in the community providing gifts, food and clothing during the holiday season. The need is expected to be even greater this holiday season.
In order to ensure these families don’t go without News10 is encouraging viewers to pick-up an Angel Tree tag and fulfill the wish of a child in the community through Dec. 23.
Angel Tree matches donors with children from qualified families unable to provide for their children.
Angel Tree tags are available for adoption through-out the area. On the tag is a specific gift for a specific child or family. By adopting an Angel Tree Tag, purchasing the item on the tag and then returning it to the tree site, the wish of a local child will be granted.
For many donors, the personal connection to a child in the community has become a special tradition. For participating companies and groups, the sponsorship program is a wonderful opportunity for employees to give back to their community through a fun and heartwarming tradition.
Angel Trees that carry tags can be found at local Titan Insurance, Furniture USA, Great Clips and many other local schools and businesses.
