Music For Good Benefiting Salvation Army Angel Tree, Presented By Harris Teeter
WCCB Charlotte’s CW has teamed up with Harris Teeter to present a special at-home concert for the holidays, hosted by Morgan Fogarty (WCCB NEWS @ TEN & EDGE) and Jon Wilson (Wilson’s World). Music For Good features local and regional musicians performing their favorite songs, all to benefit the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree and Red Kettle campaign. Tune in Saturday, November 28th at 9 PM on WCCB Charlotte’s CW, streaming on wccbcharlotte.com, in the WCCB app, and on Apple TV, Roku, and Fire TV.
WCCB Charlotte’s CW and The Salvation Army operate the Angel Tree program to provide 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. 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.
