Salvation Army Angel Tree applications open Oct. 2

Applications for the Salvation Army Angel Tree program will open at 9 a.m. Oct. 2.

 “This program has been a beacon of hope for countless families during the holiday season, helping to provide Christmas gifts for hundreds of children in our community each year,” according to a news release from the Salvation Army of Augusta.

The Angel Tree program provides gifts of new clothing and toys during the holiday season for children 12 years old and younger.

“As fall quickly approaches, we are gearing up for another Christmas season. Because of the support and generosity of many last year, The Salvation Army provided over 1,100 children with toys and winter clothing,” said Maj. Amanda Raymer, Salvation Army of Augusta area commander, in the news release. “This Christmas season, we anticipate the need for a hand-up, to be just as great. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance, we are here to come alongside and help.”

Applications will be accepted at saangeltree.org. The Salvation Army collects information to determine qualifications for participation in the program and details on each child. No private information is shared with the public. Donors will only receive the first name and Christmas wish list for each child, respecting the privacy and dignity of the recipients, the release said.

The Salvation Army of Augusta serves residents in Richmond, Columbia, Wilkes, Burke, McDuffie, and Glascock Counties. For those interested in donating gifts or volunteering to support the Angel Tree program, contact Raymer at amanda.raymer@uss.salvationarmy.org
