Over 450 Children Depending On Angel Tree

KSAL Staff - November 18, 2017 12:30 pm

The Salina Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Project begins this weekend, seeking help for over 400 area children in need.

This year there are 461 angels on the tree. Each angel represents an area child 12-years-old or younger who without a little help, might not otherwise have much of a Christmas. The angel has on it information including shoe and clothing sizes to help in purchasing individual gifts for each child.

Captain Lynn Lopez tells KSAL News that the goal is to have good-hearted people select an angel, and to then purchase gifts for the child.

 

 

Once gifts are purchased they need to be returned before December 9th to the Angel Tree, unwrapped with the angel.

The Angel Tree is located inside the Salina Central Mall, at the south end near JC Penney.

 

Captain Lynn Lopez says that the Angel Tree project is made possible through the kindness of the community.

What I find wrong is that of 450 how many are truly needed kids? When parents drive up in new or a couple years old SUV’s or other auto’s they sure as heck do not need to be a part of this program.
