Angel Tree

Sunday, October 1 - Friday, December 22

The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is an opportunity to spread joy and cheer to the less fortunate during the holidays. Whether you are an individual, family, organization, church, business or club, you can help make a difference by accepting any number of Angel Tree “tags” from The Salvation Army.

Angel Trees represent the wishes and desires of a child or youth. Through the Angel Tree program, families and children have their specific needs and wants met for a warm and joyous holiday experience.

Volunteer to Ring a Bell at a Red Kettle

Friday, September 15 - Sunday, December 24

The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night.

Who can bell ring? Anyone!
