The goal of the Angel Tree program is to get new toys and clothing into the hands of needy Children during the holiday season. Families who are eligible to participate in the program submit requests for items that each child in the household needs to the Salvation Army in advance of the holiday season.
The Salvation Army relies on St. Paul's to display angel trees in the back of the church. An angel ornament is made for each child that includes details about the requested items. Each ornament includes the first name of the child who will benefit from the donations, his or her gender, and their age. The angels may also include clothing and shoe sizes, particular items requested, and other information.
