ABC10 Partners with The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program
ABC10 & The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program
November 16th – December 19th
ABC10 has partnered with The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program to help make the season bright for families in need. Last year, The Angel Tree Program assisted over 9,000 families and 21,000 children in our community providing gifts, or new clothes and coats during the holiday season. The need is expected to be even greater this holiday season.
In order to ensure these families don’t go without, ABC10 is encouraging viewers to pick-up an Angel Tree tag and fulfill the wish of a child in our community.
Angel Tree matches donors with children from qualified families unable to provide for them.
Starting November 16th through December 19th, Angel Tree tags will be available for adoption through-out the area. On the tag is a specific gift for a specific child or family. By adopting an Angle Tree Tag, purchasing the item on the tag and then returning it to the tree site, the wish of a local child will be granted.
For many donors, the personal connection to a child in the community has become a special tradition. For participating companies and groups, the sponsorship program is a wonderful opportunity for employees to give back to their community through a fun and heartwarming tradition.
Angel Trees that carry tags can be found at your local Great Clips, select Stockton Heat Games and many other local schools and businesses.
If you’d like to participate in The Angel Tree Program as a donation tree location, please, contact The Salvation Army branch in your community.
Thanks to Great Clips, Bonney Plumbing and Stockton Heat for their support of the Angel Tree project.
