Christmas is one of the most important times of the year for The Salvation Army.  This committee ensures SAWA is connecting to the Angel Tree Program (filling gifts request for clothing and toys), Santa’s Secret Warehouse (sorting and checking Angel Tree gifts for resident children in Salvation Army facilities and the community), and Red Kettle Bell Ringing.  In 2019, the Angel Tree Program provided gifts for more than 9,000 children in Travis and Williamson counties.
