Angel Tree Drive

Home » Blog » Angel Tree Drive

This holiday season we are having an Angel Tree drive in our office through C.A.S.A. (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Williamson County. We love our community and want to partner with all of you to provide an amazing Christmas for children in need. Angel Tree is a great way to give back!

What is Angel Tree?

Angel Tree was created by The Salvation Army in 1979 by Majors Charles and Shirley White when they worked with a Lynchburg, Virginia shopping mall to provide clothing and toys for children at Christmas time.

The program got its name because the Whites identified the wishes of local children by writing their gift needs on Hallmark greeting cards that featured pictures of angels. They placed the cards on a Christmas tree at the mall to allow shoppers to select children to help. Thanks to the Whites, who were assigned by The Army to the Lynchburg area at the time, more than 700 children had a brighter Christmas that first year.

Three years later, when the Whites were transferred to Nashville, Tennessee, Angel Tree was launched in the Music City. WSM radio, which airs the Grand Ol’ Opry, came on board that year as the first Angel Tree co-sponsor in the U.S.

Who Does Angel Tree Serves?

Angel Tree gives individuals and partnering corporations an opportunity to adopt less fortunate children and provide them with personalized gifts and necessities to those who would otherwise receive very little or nothing during the holiday season. Donors can be confident that their gifts go directly, and without excessive overhead, to those who are truly needy since all Salvation Army Angels are not served by other holiday assistance programs.

How do I get involved?
