Join NBC 5 and the Salvation Army in helping make the holidays bright for more than 50,000 children and special needs adults in the DFW area at the Salvation Army Angel Tree.
Stop by a Salvation Army Angel Tree at any of the 11 malls and select an Angel tag from the tree. Each tag lists a child’s first name, age, gender, clothing sizes, wish item, and need item. Special code numbers ensure the gifts go to the families who asked for them.
Donated gifts will also be collected at approximately 400 companies and churches as employers host collection efforts on site to allow their employees a convenient way to give, and churches host the same for their church members.
The gifts will be distributed in Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Denton, and Ellis counties beginning on December 16. Families that qualified for assistance have been given appointments to pick up their gifts at one of 13 locations between December 16 and 21.
Parents began interviewing for Christmas assistance at Salvation Army community centers on September 28. To qualify, they meet with a Salvation Army worker who reviews income and expense information to make sure the family is in need. During the interview, the worker collects information about the children which is printed on the Angel tags.
Donations to the Salvation Army Angel Tree are due back on Wednesday, December 9. For more information about the Salvation Army Angel Tree, click here.
