Every holiday season, The Salvation Army Austin Area Command provides Christmas assistance to more than 8,000 children through our Angel Tree Program. When assistance is needed, parents/guardians apply for their child to become an “angel” and get adopted by the community. Our Angel Tree partners bring joy to thousands of children every Christmas morning.

Adopt: Angel Tree Adoptions will begin November 1, 2022. The Salvation Army leverages hundreds of corporations, organizations, and individuals to adopt angels every November. To fulfill adoptions, partners are given a child’s first name, interests, and clothing sizes. Partners purchase new toys and clothing for their angel and drop off gifts in early December.
