Volunteers Ready to Wrap Angel Tree Gifts

All of the angels on this year’s Salina Salvation Army’s Angel Tree, 661 of them, have been adopted. Now, volunteers are awaiting their return.

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.

Once gifts are purchased they need to be returned to the Angel Tree, unwrapped with the angel. A large potion of the angels still have not yet been returned.

Roxanne Matous from the Salina Salvation Army says “the community was so helpful by selecting 661 Angels off the tree within two weeks, now is the time to get the gifts back. There are over 200 that still need to be returned.”

The Angel Tree is located inside the Salina Central Mall, at the south end near JC Penney. Volunteers will be at the location through this Saturday, December 12th.
