With the holidays still months away, the Salvation Army is preparing to begin their annual Angel Tree campaign. Set up in the Barnes Crossing Mall food court, the Angel Tree allows shoppers to help fulfill a struggling family’s Christmas wish list.
Shoppers will take the profile of a child from the Angel Tree listing three items from the child’s wish list, as well as their hobbies and interests, and clothing sizes.
Salvation Army director of social services Susan Gilbert is searching for volunteers to assist them with the notification of families that might need help this year.
Volunteers are needed on Sept. 23 and 25 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Sept. 24 and 26 from 1 to 7 p.m., and on Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call (662) 842-9222.
