2017 INSTRUCTION FORM – Adopt A Family

2016-angel-tree-sign-upThe success of The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program depends on people like you unselfishly ‘adopting’ an angel or angels for Christmas. Thank you for being willing to give to a child in need this Christmas. God Bless You!

How does the program work?

There are some families who need a little extra attention during the Christmas Season. This program is for select families (3-4) each season that needs a little extra TLC due to unforeseen circumstances within their family dynamic. We recommend a group of partners work together to ensure the entire family can be blessed at Christmas.

What should you purchase?

For the children: We ask that you strive to provide at least 2 new toys and an outfit. As a partner you can do as much as you like and we can connect with the family for more specific requests. Please purchase new, unused age appropriate gifts and we ask that you do not wrap the gifts. Wrapping
paper may be provided for the parent to use.
For the parent(s): We suggest gift cards, towels, slippers, bath products, candles and blankets. Capt. Brown can contact for more specifics if the
partner is interested in providing more family specific gifts/needs.

After shopping: what’s next?

Please make sure to label each gift with the Angel Code, place all the gifts in one bag and secure the bag making sure the Angel’s tag is clearly located on the outside. If there is more than one bag tie those bags together and ensure the Angel’s tag is securely attached to bags. You may make a copy of the tag for proper labeling of bags more than one. For the parent’s gifts please use the Angel Code and write parent on the tag. We ask that you not put any of your personal information with the gifts. Please keep the bottom portion for your tax purposes.

Please return the families gifts to our Main Office or make arrangements with Lt. Good to drop them off at the Christmas warehouse.
