Over 600 Children Depending On Angel Tree

The Salina Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Project begins this weekend, seeking help for over 600 area children in need.

This year there are over 600 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.

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 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.
