 After the challenge of meeting high demands for Christmas assistance this year, the Salvation Army is busy preparing for Tuesday’s start of the Angel Tree Distribution.

All gifts will be distributed this Tuesday–Wednesday.  Gifts will be distributed from the Salvation Army Angel Tree Warehouse at 5001 Covington St., off of Rossville Boulevard.   

All of Cleveland’s gifts will be distributed in Cleveland on Wednesday at the Disaster Warehouse at 2960 Barney’s Lane, Cleveland.   

Distribution times for both centers will be 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
