Wilson’s World: Salvation Army Angel Tree

The Need is Still Great for the Salvation Army Angel Tree

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program is almost over for 2015, but there are still a few days left to pick out child to help this Christmas.  Wilson was in uptown Charlotte today with volunteers from Two Men and a Truck, Bank of America as well as members of the Salvation Army talking about the Angel Tree Program and the need during the holiday season.

The Angel Tree program provides Christmas assistance to those in need in our community.  Families register children age 14 and under to receive new Christmas gifts for the holidays.  Once registered, each child’s information is placed on an angel to be adopted.  This year there are more children than ever registered on the Angel Tree who are looking for a happy Christmas.

Individuals, families, groups and companies are given the opportunity to adopt angels and purchase Christmas gifts for these children.  All gifts are then returned, sorted and distributed to the families prior to Christmas day.  Through the involvement of the community, many lives are touched and much joy is spread through the Angel Tree program.

WCCB-TV is once again proud to be involved with the Salvation Army Angel Tree program.  By clicking on the Angel Tree icon on our homepage, you can choose a child in your community from our virtual Angel Tree to help this Christmas.
