The Salvation Army Has 130 Kids Yet To Be Adopted In Lufkin
There are a few kids that are in need of a good Christmas this year. The Angel Tree's around town are trying to help but so far have fallen short. The Salvation Army is reaching out to the community to help kids in need this Christmas.
According to the Lufkin Daily News there are about 130 Angel Trees still left unclaimed in the Lufkin Area.
The Angel Tree is a program sponsored by the Salvation Army in which people can purchase Christmas gifts for local children. This year the local organization received 1,100 requests from local children, about the same number as last year. Most of the un-adopted children are boys ages 10-13, and while the Angel Trees have been taken down, the Army can still provide donors with the wish list and clothing sizes of the children. Donors could call the Salivation Army for the specifics about each child and then deliver the gifts to the local office.
Donations also are being accepted that will be used to purchase items for those children. However, Salvation Army personnel encourage donors to purchase gifts to make them more personal. To adopt a child, call the Salvation Army at 634-5132 or visit the office at 410 S. Third in Lufkin.
This is a worthy cause, I hope we can all step up and help a little this holiday season! (Source Lufkin Daily News)
