DETAILS: Earlier this month, The Salvation Army has opened its warehouse doors to families to register for The Salvation Army Christmas Angel Tree assistance program. The Angel Tree program annually provides toys, food, gifts and clothing to the needy in our area during the Christmas season. In 2009, the program distributed more than 85,000 gifts purchased and donated by more than 5,000 donors benefiting in excess of 14,000 children, elderly and special needs adults. The demand for Christmas assistance this year is expected to increase. Angel Tree Coordinator, Amanda Grieves, has reported that an average day for applications this year has been approximately 260 families. During the application process families are approved upon need for holiday assistance. Parents provide their child’s clothing sizes and other miscellaneous needs. Required documents for the application can be found on The Salvation Army website at http://www.salarmy-nashville.org. Starting November 6th, Angels will be up for adoption in the malls.
