The Salvation Army Angel Program is dedicated to helping children in need have a Merry Christmas through the generous donations of you all...lovingly referred to as "Elves". It is because of our Elves that these children will know the joy of the true spirit of Christmas which is that they are loved unconditionally.
Pick up your Angel Tag up from the Christmas Tree located at Guest Reception. You can drop your gift off at Guest Reception before December 16th.
Gifts are tax deductible. Just attach the bottom of the angel tag to your receipt.
Should I wrap the gifts?
No. Please don't wrap anything. This is to ensure that gifts are age appropriate and that kids in the same family receive a similar amount of presents. (Again, they are just like our kids- they will know if a sibling gets more then them!) The best thing to do is put each angel's stuff in a big garbage bag and label it with the code so we can be sure that it gets to the right child.
Should I purchase gift cards and what about gift receipts?
We discourage gift cards unless you are buying for a teenager as they can be more difficult to buy for. If buying for a little one, gifts are always a better option. We can't guarantee that that the little ones will be the one benefiting from a gift card.
You should include gift receipts for the clothing items just in case they don't fit.
How should I organize the gifts for drop off?
Place each child's gifts in a large trash bag. Place a copy of their angel tag inside the bag and affix a copy of the tag on the outside of the bag. If you need more than one bag for your angel, follow the same protocol for each bag. This will ensure that your gifts get to the right child.
