Angel Trees, bell-ringers to open season Saturday

Published 11:27 am Friday, November 9, 2012

This year’s Salvation Army Angel Tree drive will include more than 750 needy children from 338 families and 130 seniors who otherwise might receive no gifts during the holiday season.

While the Angel Tree setup will be similar to last year’s, the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary is helping combine it with the Red Kettle drive that features bell-ringers outside department and grocery stores. In conjunction with the Angel Tree, the Salvation Army Red Kettle Kickoff will be from 10 a.m. until noon Saturday at Walmart.
