To receive Christmas assistance for your family,
please call 773-205-3690 or email your city, state, and zip code to us at USCMET.AngelTree@usc.salvationarmy.org.

The holidays should be a magical time, especially for children who often dream of the wonderful things they’ll find under their tree. Sadly, many children throughout the greater Chicagoland area won’t even have a Christmas tree, much less presents to open.
To ensure that all children have a gift to open for Christmas, The Salvation Army identifies families in need through our corps community centers and social service programs. Donors purchase requested gifts for these children and the Army provides each family a box full of special foods for the holiday season, ensuring that everyone has a Merry Christmas.
