2015 Christmas Distribution is TBD.
The Salvation Army partners with Virginian Pilot Joy Fund, Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots, and Operation Blessing to provide Christmas assistance to families in need. Families with children ages 0-11 may apply for this program and receive toys, food and if selected for the Angel Tree program, clothing items as well.
For 30 years, WVEC-TV 13News has been a proud partner of The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. In Hampton Roads each Christmas more than 60 businesses, churches, corporations, and vendors display Angel Tree for community members to adopt and shop for clothing for a child in need registered with The Salvation Army. Clothing items are then returned to the location where the tag was picked up and The Salvation Army picks the items up from the store and distributes them to the appropriate children during Christmas distribution.
