LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The clock is ticking for thousands of Kentuckiana children hoping to find gifts under the Christmas tree this year.

Donations are down compared to this time last year for the Salvation Army Angel Tree program. As of Tuesday morning, about 3,500 angels were left in Kentucky and 425 need to be adopted in southern Indiana.

The first 300 people to donate $50 or more will receive a free ticket to Lights Under Louisville at the Louisville MEGA Cavern.
