The 2019 Angel Tree program is coming to a close, with adoptions ending the week of December 9 and distribution the week of December 16 and we wish to thank everyone who adopted Angels so these children will have a wonderful Christmas.  Angel 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.

CORPORATE ANGEL TREE

Thank you!!! to CS Disco and Disco Cares who adopted 374 angels as part of our Corporate Angel Tree program.  CS DISCO recently moved to the Austin area and the employees have volunteered at our Rock the Red Kettle ATX event and participated in adoption and distribution for Angel Tree the past two years.

“Core to DISCO’s culture is our commitment to community.  We want to give back and we believe every company should do the same.”

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.
