Through an interview process, The Salvation Army identifies local children age 12 and under who qualify as “angels.” Community sponsors select angels, whose names and information are displayed on holiday ornaments, from Christmas trees displayed in public venues. They then donate gifts on the children’s behalf, bringing them to The Salvation Army Christmas Store, where they are stored in the Door To Door containers. The storage units will remain at the store until after the holidays.
Thanks to the Angel Tree Program, 7,933 Austin children received new toys and clothing during the holidays last year. The Salvation Army has been serving Central Texas since 1889. It provides a broad range of supportive services to the homeless, near-homeless and low-income populations, and is the largest local provider of emergency shelter for men, women and families.
