Next week is Angel Tree registration week

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Angel Tree registration deadline week approaches quickly.

With ten weeks until Christmas, the Holiday Season is quickly approaching and many local families are in need of material assistance.

To meet this need, The Salvation Army is in the midst of its Christmas outreach programs.

Monday, October 17, is the start of the last week of Angel Tree Registration for our local children and seniors.

The Salvation Army is expecting long lines as need is great.

Families at or below the poverty line with children 12 years of age or younger and seniors 60 years of age and older are invited to register for our Angel Tree Program.

Through the generosity of our donors, the Angel Tree provides much needed clothing, toys and other crucial items to qualified participants.

Registration will take place every day October 17 – 21.

In Chattanooga, folks can register at 5001 Covington Street, off of Rossville Boulevard, 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM on above dates.

In Cleveland, folks can register at Bradley Square Mall, by appointment only, by calling 423-308-3467.

For more information, including documentation required for registration, families in need should call 423-756-1023 or visit the Salvation Army’s website.

Volunteers are invited to join our ranks and assist our staff with the Angel Tree Program as well as our other seasonal efforts.

Volunteers may assist at Angel Tree tables in the mall, and serve as bell ringers in order to raise money for our many ministries which meet the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of local residents.

Additionally, volunteers may fill stockings with everyday essentials for seniors or fill backpacks for local homeless.

As Kimberly George of the Salvation Army says, changing a life is as easy as ringing a bell or stuffing a stocking or backpack!
