Angel Tree Program Application Deadline Approaching

Posted: Updated:

The season for giving is fast approaching and the Salvation Army is doing its share to make sure every child has a good Christmas.       

The Angel Tree program is accepting applications for holiday assistance.  The goal is to help children whose parents may not be able to provide gifts. Families who are going through hard times are encouraged to sign up.    

Melinda Johnson of the Salvation Army said, "We want to make sure everybody know it's out there, that this program is out there that the Salvation Army has done this for years and that they can come. Even if they are working and have a job but maybe you're just making it paycheck to paycheck."      

The Salvation Army will be accepting applications through tomorrow and they will have a make up date in November, but the date has not been announced yet. 

You can find angel trees in businesses across Charlottesville, starting in November.
