This week the Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX offices raised a grand total of $5,146! We had a total of 20 Angels, and several bags of toys and clothes for the less fortunate.
The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is designed to raise gifts to assist families who are in crisis as a result of difficult circumstances and who otherwise wouldn’t have the resources to celebrate Christmas. Angel Tree gives donors the opportunity to make a difference in the life of an underprivileged child, teen or senior citizen. By adopting an angel, you can bring a smile to someone’s face this Christmas.
We have a total of 20 adopt-an-angel(s). Standard angels consist of wants and needs and are the more traditional angels. They include specific information about a child including clothing sizes, toy preferences, etc. We also provide for Forgotten angels, these are more generic and allow their team to fulfill angels who may have been picked up but not returned. Any additional money or items from the Standard adopt-an-angel will be given to the forgotten angels.
“I have headed the program the last 3 years, because I was an “Angel” for several years as a child. Not only did my family rely on these generous donations every year, but I have vivid memories of opening up my gifts and thinking it was a Christmas miracle! No child should be left out on the joys of Christmas morning. And the Angel Tree program (and many others) can help these children feel loved and valued- unlocking their potential for a brighter future.” – Amanda Robinson
