Each year, thousands of toys, books and new clothes are distributed via the annual Salvation Army Angel Tree. Children's wish lists – along with gender and age – are posted on tags at various locations throughout Fairfield County. Then, individuals, families and groups can select a tag – or tags – and purchase the listed items for the child to receive on Christmas morning.
Angel Trees are available at businesses across the county, and specific locations will be posted closer to Christmas. If you’d like to fulfill a wish but cannot visit an Angel Tree location, please contact us and we can pair you with a wish list over the phone.
Once you gather items on the wish list, you can bring it to our distribution center where volunteers wrap gifts and coordinate with the receiving families. We’d prefer that you don’t wrap your gifts, but please feel free to include a roll or two of wrapping paper with your gifts if you’d like. More specific instructions will be included on your wish tag.
The Angel Tree program is a great philanthropic activity for the entire family, regardless of budget! Get the entire family involved by letting your children weigh in on which tag to select, and then shop together for the items on the wish list. If you select a wish list with more expensive items, recruit extended family, friends or coworkers to bring the child’s wish to life Christmas morning.
Would you like to help us Meet the Need here in Fairfield County?
If you’d like to select a tag(s) from the Angel Tree this Christmas, please contact Captain Laura DeMichael at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 740-687-1921, ext. 1002.
Starting this year, Walmart will feature a "Registry for Good" list through which individuals can purchase items for children in need in our community. These purchases will help supplement items donated through our Angel Tree program when needed (for example, if a child in a multiple-children-family receives less gifts than siblings).
