Bring joy to a child this holiday

Quad Cities, USA– The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program is once again helping area families by collecting toys for children this holiday season. This annual holiday program provides new toys for children of families who are are having a hard time adding Christmas gifts to their budget.

Starting on Saturday, November 5, all four local Wal-Marts will have a tree decorated with paper angel tags listing the age, gender and toy ideas. Anyone wanting to participate can select an angel tag from the tree and purchase a gift for a child. New, unwrapped toys for a child, along with the original tag can be returned to any Angel Tree location. The last day you can choose an angel is December 15 to allow time for distribution by The Salvation Army.

Major Gary Felton, Quad Cities Coordinator, states, “The Salvation Army is very dedicated to helping parents maintain a sense of normalcy and dignity so Christmas can truly be a blessed event for their family. Your donation of toys, time, talent or money will be a simple act that will help to ease the challenges in another person’s life.”
