Make Christmas Bright


How do you make a child’s Christmas Bright?

What is an Angel Tree?  It is a holiday assistance program in which an individual sponsor or group sponsor/organization/corporation purchases new toys for a deserving child (or “Angel”) or a food gift card for seniors in need. For many, the gifts they receive through the Angel Tree Program will be the only ones they open on Christmas morning.
Last year alone we registered 1,000+ families, over 3,443 children, and 285 seniors who would not experience the magic of Christmas without the generosity of people in our community.
It will take an entire army this Christmas to deliver the nearly 19,000 toys to the neediest children and provide for our seniors.
If you believe, every child and every senior deserves to experience the joy of Christmas please support us this Christmas!
Our partners who will be hosting public angel trees will be at the following locations from November 13th – December 8th:
News & Record at 200 E Market
Whole Foods at Friendly
Morehead Foundry
Our Christmas Stockings can be registered for here OR picked up and returned at any Chick Fila.   Christmas Stockings can also be picked up / returned at The Salvation Center of Hope at 1311 S Eugene Street, Monday-Friday, from 9:30am to 4:30pm.
We ask all gifts, stockings, and gift cards be returned unwrapped by December 1st.
