The Salvation Army of Paris is excited to announce its annual Angel Tree program kickoff, which begins on November 22. The program provides toys and clothing to children whose families are facing financial difficulties. Thanks to the generosity of our community, more than 700 children will experience the joy of opening presents on Christmas morning.
“The Salvation Army Angel Tree program provides toys and clothing to children and families who might be struggling to afford Christmas gifts this year,” said Major Jennifer Chisholm of The Salvation Army of Paris. “Angels are available for adoption by community members and businesses, who play a significant role in bringing joy to children’s hearts this Christmas.”
You can find the Salvation Army’s Angel Trees at Walmart and other businesses during the holiday season. Individuals and companies in the community can adopt “angels,” represented by paper angels on trees. Each angel symbolizes a child or senior citizen who might only receive a gift at Christmas with this program. Angels will be available for adoption from November 22 to December 12.
If you cannot shop in person this year, you can still participate in the Angel Tree program through Walmart’s “Registry for Good” program. Visit www.walmartangeltree.com and search for The Salvation Army of Paris to order items that benefit local families. Walmart will deliver these gifts directly to The Salvation Army.
