The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit and Walmart Bring Christmas Joy Through 2020 Angel Tree Campaign
SOUTHFIELD, Mich., (Oct. 30, 2020) — The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit is working in collaboration with southeast Michigan Walmart locations to provide Christmas gifts to children in need through its Angel Tree Campaign beginning Sunday, Nov. 1 through Saturday, Dec. 19.
The Salvation Army Angel Trees will be scattered throughout participating Walmart locations, each featuring tags with a child’s name and wish list. Community members can choose a tag from off the tree at their local Walmart to provide gifts to a local child in need. The gifts will be distributed by The Salvation Army to families in time for Christmas morning.
Once purchased, donations may be dropped off at a storefront donation bin and distributed to families in the community. Participating Walmart stores include:
