The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte officially launches its 2019 Angel Tree program this week. Major Larry Broome, Area Commander of The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte, joined Rising to discuss the annual initiative.
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 12 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.
