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 Kansas and Missouri won’t even have a Christmas tree, much less any presents to open.

That’s where The Salvation Army comes in. Through the Angel Tree program, gifts are provided to children in need who would otherwise be left out on Christmas.

You can adopt an angel from any tree at any of the following locations:
