Sponsors still needed for Angel Tree Program

SALISBURY, Md. – More than 100 local kids are still waiting to be adopted this Christmas as part of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program.

Officials say they have about 150 angels left on trees at several locations including Macy’s in Salisbury as well as the Walmarts in Berlin, Fruitland and North Salisbury. Each tag on the tree has the name of a child in our local community, their age and three generic wish list items. Organizers say these children are incredibly grateful even if you can only get one item on their list.

“There are over 3 million children in the United States that are going to benefit from the Angel Tree Program of the Salvation Army. Twelve hundred or so are right here on the Lower Eastern Shore. So children who otherwise wouldn’t have toys under their tree at Christmas are going to benefit greatly,” says Captain Matt Trantham with the Salvation Army.

If you’d like to adopt a child this Christmas, stop by an Angel Tree location and bring the gifts back to the Salvation Army on Oak Street by December 15th.
