Salvation Army Taking Angel Tree Applications

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ The Lawton Salvation Army wants to be sure every child has something under the tree at Christmas.

Monday, the Salvation Army started taking applications for its annual Angel Tree. The decade-old program helps make sure kids get gifts for Christmas by assigning a child in need to someone who signs up to supply the presents. The angels hang on a tree at Central Mall. You pick an angel, boy or girl, and buy him or her a few gifts.

"Some families are suffering right now, especially with the stuff that happened this past month across the nation," Salvation Army Lieutenant Claudia Roseno said. "We just hope if there is a need, we can help with that family."

The program also provides food boxes to families who might otherwise go hungry. If you want to sign up for the Angel Tree, go to the Salvation Army Community Center on southwest "E" Avenue in Lawton.

The Salvation Army is also offering its Angel Tree in Stephens County. It'll start taking applications there on October 29th.
