Kickoff for registration of The Salvation Army Roswell Angel Tree begins. Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. 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. The gifts are distributed to the family to place under their family Christmas tree. For more information, visit saangeltree.org.
