How Angel Tree Works

Social Service agencies and schools refer families to The Salvation Army for help with Christmas. Participants are verified that the family is truly in need.
2
We obtain the name of each child in the family, 12 years and under, they give us a list of desired Christmas gifts. Verification is made to ensure that the family is not receiving duplicate services from another agency.
3
Angel tags are available online or printed for each child in need and placed on The Salvation Army Angel Trees at Walmart, local companies, churches, business' and organizations.

A History Of Community Involvement

Along with the familiar Red Kettles, the Angel Tree program is one of The Salvation Army's highest profile Christmas efforts. Angel Tree was created by The Salvation Army in 1979 by Majors Charles and Shirley White when they worked with a Lynchburg, Virginia shopping mall to provide clothing and toys for children at Christmas time.

The program got its name because the Whites identified the wishes of local children by writing their gift needs on Hallmark greeting cards that featured pictures of angels. They placed the cards on a Christmas tree at the mall to allow shoppers to select children to help. Thanks to the Whites, who were assigned by The Army to the Lynchburg area at the time, more than 700 children had a brighter Christmas that first year.

Three years later, when the Whites were transferred to Nashville, Tennessee, Angel Tree was launched in the Music City. WSM radio, which airs the Grand Ol' Opry, came on board that year as the first Angel Tree co-sponsor in the U.S.

Because of the on-air promotion on WSM in Nashville, as well as national publicity on CNN and the Larry King Show, news of Angel Tree spread across the country like wildfire.

The program includes adoption for online Angels and printed angels at area Walmart's, corporations, churches and organizations. The local communities have fully supported the Angel Tree program, making it possible to help numerous children and families have an incredible Christmas experience.
