The Salvation Army is excited to kick off the Cleveland Salvation Army’s Christmas Campaign inside Bradley Square Mall, this Saturday at noon on the food court stage.
Cleveland Mayor Tom Rowland will be on hand to help kick off the festivities.
The Salvation Army and the WDEF News 12 Angel Tree program provide an opportunity to put a personal touch on your donation since shoppers can select an Angel Tag at an area mall or their place of work.
Each Angel Tag provides the name, age, gender, clothing sizes and special Christmas needs and wishes of a needy child, senior or disabled adult.
Caring individuals select one or more of the angels from the tree, purchase gifts from the list and return the unwrapped gifts to the Angel Tree.
Donors may purchase the need, the wish, or both, or may choose to buy something from each clothing size listed and The Salvation Army will make your delivery in time for Christmas. Created in 1979, The Angel Tree is one of The Salvation Army’s most important holiday efforts.
In 2009, The Salvation Army and WDEF News 12 Angel Tree Program served 2,763 angels in the Chattanooga and Cleveland areas.
All are encouraged and welcome to attend the kickoff celebration.
