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.


To receive Christmas assistance for your family, please call 773-205-3690 or email us at USCMET_Angeltree@usc.salvationarmy.org.

You can participate in The Salvation Army's Angel Tree in one of the following ways:

  1. The Virtual Angel Tree is a new and easy way to shop for Christmas while spreading joy and cheer to the less fortunate this holiday season. You can view and select Angel tags online, shop from home, and even ship Christmas toys directly to The Salvation Army center close to you. Anyone can be part of the new Virtual Angel Tree Program - just go to The Salvation Army closest to you or call 773-205-3516 or email us at uscmet_holidaydonate@usc.salvationarmy.org. Businesses, groups, or organizations are invited to be part of this innovative new program by hosting their own virtual Angel Tree page. Company sites are fully customizable and allow you to reach all of your employees, clients, family and friends, wherever they are located.  
  2. Printed Angel Tree Tags allow you to exhibit tags wherever you choose - as ornaments on a Christmas tree, on bulletin boards or simply distributed to fellow employees, customers, or guests.
  3. What if I want to donate a gift without the hassle?
    Simply purchase a new toy, boots, gloves, outerwear—anything you would like to give to a needy child—and drop it off (unwrapped, please) at your nearest Salvation Army location.

Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available for the Angel Tree program. Call 773-205-3516 or email us at uscmet_holidaydonate@usc.salvationarmy.org to find out how your company can partner with The Salvation Army by purchasing one of our sponsorship packages. Not only will your company enjoy the perks of partnering with The Salvation Army and our media partners—you will also help make many children happy this holiday season.
