After the challenge of meeting high demands for Christmas assistance this year, The Salvation Army is busy preparing for tomorrow’s start of the Angel Tree Distribution. After the final review, over 300 Angels’ gifts were not returned. Volunteers are busy trying to put gifts together for these forgotten Angels.
This year, The Salvation Army will assist 5,445 individuals with Christmas, which is a 97% increase over five years ago.
All gifts will be distributed this Tuesday and Wednesday. Gifts will be distributed from The Salvation Army Angel Tree Warehouse located at 5001 Covington Street, off of Rossville Blvd.
All of Cleveland’s gifts will be distributed in Cleveland on Thursday, at The Christmas Warehouse located at 2355 South Lee Hwy, Cleveland.
Distribution times for both centers will be 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
To support The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program or other Christmas efforts, please donate financially to the red kettles, by calling 1-800-Sal-Army or mailing in your donation to The Salvation Army, 822 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN, 37403. Volunteer time is just as valuable.
