Nearly 55 percent of children in Florida are living in or near poverty. Every year, members of our community work together to reemphasize the meaning of Christmas, despite the challenges. Achieva Credit Union and ABC Action News are proud to partner with the Salvation Army to help local families during the holidays. Here are the details about the 2021 Angel Tree Program.
What is the 2021 Angel Tree Program?
The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program gives new clothing and toys to children of needy families. Through tree displays, numbered paper angel tags provide the first name, age, and gender of a child in need. For families with multiple children, the details will show for each. Contributors remove a tag from the tree and purchase the gifts accordingly for the child(ren) described. It is a volunteer-driven program; with people from all over Tampa Bay.
