Shop for a Salvation Army Angel/Ring the Bell

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program provides new clothing and/or toys for children of needy families. Each Angel Tree is decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age, and gender of a child who is in need of a gift. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.

Also, about 33% of total yearly donations to The Salvation Army come through the Red Kettle campaign, which only runs from late November until December 24.

When you give to The Salvation Army, you provide gifts of healing and hope for those who need it most at Christmastime.

FSS provides Christmas Assistance Baskets to approximately 200 individuals and families. These baskets must be filled, wrapped, and distributed. This is definitely an event where you could volunteer.
