Salvation Army preparing to distribute Angel Tree gifts

Gifts needed for Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program

The programs and services provided, not only at Christmas but throughout the year, and funded in large part by the Red Kettle Christmas Campaign.

State Reps.

The annual cram the cruiser fundraiser for the Houston Salvation Army Christmas hampers was on December 2, 2017 in front of the recently reopened grocery store, Buy-Low Foods.

They stood outside the store and asked shoppers to contribute money to the kettle. The warehouse at 901 Trade St. has about 19,000 square feet, and the Salvation Army is using about half of that space.

Tables piled high with toys, organized by age, are brought into the gym at the Salvation Army of York in canvas laundry carts as employees work alongside volunteers to sort through donations of new toys as they are dropped off.

The Joplin Salvation Army has already made several cutbacks due to unmet goals in previous years, and this year's loss could mean another cut in jobs.

"[The community] always does, they always come out to support The Salvation Army and help continue our programs and serving the needy here in Colorado Springs", Kauffman said.

"And I get enjoyment out of it because I'm doing a good deed for the people who don't have anything".

The Salvation Army's Angel Trees are located in each area- Walmart and the Sikes Senter Mall.

"I'm at Walmart almost every day", said Michelle Jackson.

"The more that's donated to Waseca County, the more help we can offer later down the line", she said.

This year, Veroeven thought she'd be "a little more aggressive" and set up buckets on Fridays as well but so far has only raised around $250. "And then they're also gonna be able to pick out things like stocking stuffers, stuffed animals, family games, and we even have a table of hats and mittens".

Starlene Collins, Manager of the Western Slope Food Bank said, she didn't expect the outcome to be as big as it was. "It's over and above what we needed to raise previous year".
