Salvation Army Angel Giving Trees

Around the holiday season, the Salvation Army puts up Angel Giving Trees to help provide children with presents. This afternoon, the organization put one up at the ShopKo in Onalaska. 

 

Last year, the Angel Giving Tree provided over 1,000 kids with presents.  The Salvation Army says they hope to hit the same number this year.  The trees can also be found at every ShopKo in the La Crosse area, as well as the Valley View Mall.  Officers with the Salvation Army say it's a great feeling to help out struggling families have a good holiday season.

 

"Each tag actually connects with a specific child, so you really could imagine what that child looks like as you pick that toy out and really kind of have it be a good Christmas blessing for you as you do that."

 

There is no limit to how many tags you can take, and all the Giving Trees will be up until December 8th.  The presents will be distributed on December 14th at the National Guard Armory in Onalaska.
