Angel Tree registration appointments are being scheduled now through October 19 (weekdays only).

Annual Report Angel Tree 2017Angel Tree provides Christmas assistance to families in need in Travis and Williamson Counties. Through The Salvation Army Angel Tree program, donors can give joy to a child in need during the holiday season. Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. Through Angel Tree, thousands of local children will find gifts waiting under their Christmas trees.

The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides new clothing and toys for children of families in need through the support of donors like you. Found in local malls, companies and churches, Angel Trees are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child in need of gifts. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.

Once a child has been registered as an “Angel,” The Salvation Army makes a promise to provide Christmas for that child. This promise includes a variety of gifts for each child. In order to accomplish this, The Salvation Army depends on the generosity of individual donors, corporations and organizations. Last year, hundreds of companies, organizations and individuals helped fulfill the gift requests of more than 7,000 local children who would otherwise have not had gifts at Christmas.

Majic 95.5 Radiothon

The Angel Tree Radiothon is schedule to take place on Friday, December 7, 2018.  Please check in for more information.

Thank you to everyone who called in to donate during the Angel Tree Radiothon last year.  With the generous help of sponsors and donors in 2017, along with the support of our friends at Majic 95.5, The Salvation Army Angel Tree was able to assist up to 7,000 children during the holiday season in Travis and Williamson counties.

There was a tremendous outpouring of support from the community.  All of the money raised ensured that every child registered has gifts and new clothing for Christmas.

How does it work?

Once Angels have been registered, Angel “tags” or ornaments are printed with that Angel’s name, age, gender, gift requests and a code number. Companies and organizations can participate in our Corporate Angel Tree program and adopt Angels to hang on a tree at their workplace, school or church. You can also visit one of three Austin area shopping malls and adopt a child from one of our Mall Angel Trees. After the Angel’s gifts have been purchased, they are returned to The Salvation Army where they are sorted by their unique code numbers and distributed to the families.

You may also call (512) 605-1410 for more information or questions on how to donate to the Angel Tree program.

Please leave a message if no one answers, and we will get back to you shortly.
