Salvation Army Angel Tree Program

Last year, Angel Tree provided gifts to more than 2,200 area children. The Salvation Army has placed Angel Trees adorned with the names of children in the community and a list of their wants and needs this holiday season. Last year the Angel Trees served 2,200 children in our community, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to give back this year. The Angel Trees will be placed around the community with the main tree inside Post Oak Mall. The program provides gifts for newborns to 14-year-olds.
