THE SALVATION ARMY ADAPTS ANGEL TREE PROGRAM TO FEATURE A WAY TO DONATE TOYS
As families across the country continue to experience the economic fallout caused by the global pandemic, Walmart is stepping up to help The Salvation Army meet unprecedented need this holiday season. Joining The Salvation Army’s Hope Marches On initiative, Walmart will help bring Christmas presents to families across the country through the Walmart Registry for Good and The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree programs.
The Salvation Army and Walmart are making it easier and safer for customers to give to those in need this Christmas. For those who prefer to shop online, the Walmart Registry for Good offers an easy way to purchase needed toys and clothes in the donor’s community that are shipped directly to their local Salvation Army Angel Tree. Once gifts are received, the local Salvation Army will distribute them to families in need. Visit https://bit.ly/3ozlkhd to view The Quincy Area Command Registry for Good. Salvation Army Angel Trees will also appear in Walmart stores throughout America, giving local shoppers the opportunity to select children to purchase gifts and donate them onsite.
A new population of families are facing unemployment and financial hardships this Christmas and will struggle to put gifts under the tree. As a result of the economic impact of the ongoing health crisis, The Salvation Army expects to serve more people with holiday assistance this year. Services include helping put food on the table, ensuring rent and utility bills are paid, providing shelter, and placing presents under the tree through Angel Tree.
