Treasures for Children

 

The Salvation Army of Western Pennsylvania wants to ensure everyone feels the special joy surrounding the Christmas season. This is why The Salvation Army provides thousands of children and individuals with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, winter coats, clothing, and toys and gifts at this time of year. One of the programs we use to accomplish the giving of toys and gifts as well as providing hope and Christmas joy to individuals and families in need is the Treasures for Children program. After years of sharing the name Angel Tree with Prison Ministries and noticing an increasing number of groups in the area using that name as well, The Salvation Army leadership in this area sought out a way to set the program apart from the rest. The result was the Treasures for Children program, “Giving Children a Christmas to Treasure Since 2001”.

Through Treasures for Children, sponsors become personally involved because they know each tag represents a specific child in need. The Salvation Army is able to identify families in need of assistance through its Worship and Service Centers, Services Centers, Service Units and referrals from other community organizations. During Christmas Assistance sign-ups, a Salvation Army officer, case worker or trusted and trained volunteer interviews each parent/guardian to assess the needs of their family. The family must meet minimum poverty guidelines and the children range in age from birth up to and including 13 years of age. At this time, it is also determined if the family qualifies for any other available programs. The Salvation Army maintains confidentiality of all participants.

This program brings holiday joy to thousands of needy children during the Christmas Season all because of the hard work and generosity of our donors, willingness of our volunteers and dedication to of employees to consistently and tirelessly serve those in need.
