QUAD CITIES, USA: Here in the Quad Cities, and all across the country, an electronic alternative is
available for people who do most of their shopping on-line.
§ Jcpenney and The Salvation Army have joined forces again this Christmas season to spread cheer to
even more children, teens and seniors in need through the Angel Giving Tree online program.
§ From now through Dec. 13, customers will be able to visit jcp.com/angel and participate in an online
version of The Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree program, enabling customers to provide gifts to children,
teens and seniors who, due to financial hardship, may not otherwise receive a Christmas gift.
§ The online Angel Giving Tree program builds on the legacy of The Salvation Army's Angel Giving Tree
program that has been an annual Christmas tradition for more than 40 years.
§ Customers can choose to adopt an Angel in any community by searching by zip code, city and state, age
and gender. The angel adoption process takes less than 10 minutes, which is followed by a confirmation
email that includes the Angel’s wish list and information on where to ship your gifts.
§ This year, supporters have the option of adopting 10 or more angels as part of a new group adoption
feature. Adopting angels as a group enables companies, churches, civic organizations or online
communities to manage the group adoption process online by using the “create a group” function on
§ In order to ensure delivery by Christmas, all adoptions and gift purchases made on jcp.com must be
completed before Dec. 9, otherwise you have until Dec. 13 to purchase a jcpenney gift card.
§ Angel Giving Tree gifts purchased through jcp.com can be shipped free of charge to one of 1,200
Salvation Army collection centers nationwide - putting the entire selection, shopping and delivery process
at the customer's fingertips.
§ Jcpenney is the only retailer to offer Salvation Army Angel adoptions online. In 2010, nearly 70,000 angels
were adopted online and together, jcpenney and the Army hope to far exceed that number in 2011.
§ Each year, The Salvation Army helps more than 4 million people through social service programs during
Christmas. The Angel Giving Tree program is one way a small gift can bring joy to a Salvation Army
Angel this Christmas season.
