Kickoff nears for Salvation Army Angel Tree program

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It's that time of year - time for the 2012 Salvation Army Angel Tree campaign.

This year, there are nearly 16,500 angels that need to be adopted. Each of the paper angels represents a real child in our area that won't have a package to open on Christmas Day without your help.

Starting on Friday, November 23, you be able to adopt an angel at the following locations in WAVE Country:

In Louisville:
Mall St. Matthews - Between Victoria Secret and Arhaus Furniture
Oxmoor Center - Outside Von Maur and Anthropology
Jefferson Mall - Outside Ross Dress for Less store

In southern Indiana:
Green Tree Mall in Clarksville
Walmart in Corydon

David Yarmuth, spokesperson for The Salvation Army Louisville Command, said shoppers are asked to cater to the clothing needs first, then buy the wants on the list.

When you're done shopping, bring the unwrapped gifts back to the Angel Tree location where you adopted your angel. The final day to adopt an angel and return all gifts is Sunday, December 9.
