Salvation Army's Angel Tree Makes Christmas Special For Kids

"While the EMM team may never see the face of the person they have helped, we know that our contribution to the Salvation Army Angel Tree Gift Program will bring joy to those who truly need it most".

In those 439 families, toys will now be underneath the Christmas tree for 1,009 local children because of the Salvation Army, even more children than previous year.

Volunteers ground the gifts that included bicycles and other toys Tuesday at the Texas Army National Guard Armory in Wichita Falls.

"A lot of people don't have the money to provide for this, and so we try to take all that worry out of their minds", said Major Byron Medlock, Salvation Army.

Rev. West said they were prepared with 300 toys, enough to give each child four gifts.

Tom and Carla Hedges said they've been volunteering for at least eight years and love being a part of the process.

She exited Shopko Hall carrying a large plastic bag filled with the gifts.

They're the Salvation Army's Christmas helpers. "They are going to be so happy", said Angelica Machuca.

The toys were purchased with funds specifically for Emergency Disaster Service, Christmas assistance, Nichols said. "For them, it's an overwhelming feeling of gratitude to the community and everyone that is involved".

While the community has been extra generous in their gift giving, the organization said unfortunately the same isn't true for the Red Kettle drive.

Soon, families will only be able to receive help from the Angel Tree for a total of three years. "That tells me that we're doing some really good stuff here". "Please consider donating. We still have a goal we need to make".
