The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program provides new clothing and/or toys for children of needy families. Each Angel Tree is decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age, and gender of a child who is in need of a gift. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.
Each year, we look for volunteer sponsors, ranging from neighborhood associations to private companies, volunteer to place Angel Trees in secure, high-pedestrian traffic areas within their community, organization or office. The sponsoring organization serves as a collection place for the gifts and provides secure storage until a volunteer from The Salvation Army of Lancaster can collect the gifts for distribution,to help families enjoy the holiday season.
