Most of us look forward to receiving gifts over the holidays. Children, especially, dream about the wonderful things they hope to find under the tree on Christmas morning. Unfortunately, many children in Clark County won’t even have a Christmas tree, much less any presents to open.
That’s where The Salvation Army in Vancouver, Washington comes in. Through a program called “Giving Tree”, gifts are provided to needy children who would otherwise be left out on Christmas.
The Salvation Army Giving Tree program provides an opportunity for the personal touch, as shoppers can select an Angel Tag at an area mall or their place of work. Each Angel Tag provides the name, age, gender, clothing sizes and special Christmas needs and wishes of a needy child.
Caring individuals select one or more of the Angels from the tree, purchase gifts from the list and return the unwrapped gifts to the Giving Tree. Donors may purchase the need, the wish, or both, or may choose to buy something from each clothing size listed.
