The Salvation Army Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas gifts for hundreds of thousands of children around the country, including Roswell, each year. Once a child has been registered and accepted as an Angel, their Christmas wishlist is shared with donors in your community who purchase gifts of new clothing and toys.
