This holiday season we hope you will join Stockton Graham & Co. in supporting the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, which allows participants to buy clothing for children of needy families.
The Angel Tree Program was created in the late 1970s by Charles and Shirley White, who volunteered at their local mall collecting children’s toys for Christmas. During their first year alone, the couple provided gifts to over 700 children in their area. The rest is history.
Listed below are the procedures that must be followed to ensure gifts are delivered to your angel:
1. Visit your local Angel Tree location and choose your child and/or family. Often, this will be an area mall. Here in Wake County, Angel Trees are located at Crabtree Valley Mall, Triangle Town Center, and Cary Towne Center.
2. Purchase new clothing and leave items unwrapped. In addition to clothing, you may also donate toys for their toy shop.
3. Tape the intact angel to the item. If more than one gift is purchased, put these unwrapped gifts in a bag, write the reference ID on the outside of the bag and make sure the angel is inside the bag.
4. Return all packages to your local drop off location. Here in Raleigh, please return packages to 2116D New Bern Ave. in the Old Winn Dixie, Longview Shopping Center by Friday, December 9th.
You may also adopt online HERE.
Any donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping a child this holiday season!
