In a recent year the program distributed toys to more than 50,000 children in Arizona.
Christmas Angel trees can be found in various Phoenix area shopping malls.
Each of the trees is decorated with Christmas Angel tags that represent a boy or girl 16 years of age or younger.
These are children whose families have qualified for holiday assistance through The Salvation Army and have met the criteria established by the organization.
You can purchase the gifts wherever you'd like; you don't have to buy them at the mall. Every year there are people who, for whatever reason, select angels from the tree but never bring the gifts for them.
What I like about the Salvation Army's Christmas Angel program is that you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars, and you know that 100% of your donation will go to a child!
Some children ask for costly gifts, but some do not, or some are very young and just need basics. A few comments about the gifts: And if you thought that was my final word, it wasn't.
If you're in the mood to shop at a Salvation Army thrift store in Brooklyn, here are nine specific locations.The Salvation Army's Christmas Angel program is a tradition in Arizona. This is a very personal way in which you can brighten the holidays for a needy child, by purchasing new clothes or a toy for that specific child.
