Most of us look forward to receiving gifts over the holidays.
Children, especially, dream about the wonderful things they hope to find under the tree on Christmas morning. Unfortunately, many children in Wichita won't even have a Christmas tree, much less any presents to open.
That's where The Salvation Army comes in. Through the Angel Tree program, gifts are provided to children in need who would otherwise be left out on Christmas.
You can adopt an angel from any tree at any of the following locations:
- Towne East - Lower Level by JC Penny
- Towne West - Outside Candyopolis
Angels will be available on the trees starting November 29, 2013
Towne East and West Malls at the Angel Tree tables are the drop off locations for Angel Tree Gifts.
Please consider that ALL gifts need to be turned in for distribution by December 17, 2013 at our Angel Tree drop off locations.
