GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — For 32 years, the Salvation Army in Kent County and WOOD TV8 have helped make the miracle of Christmas morning come true for more than half a million children.
Registration for assistance or to host an Angel Tree this year has closed, but there’s still plenty of work to be done. To help your neighbors, find an Angel Tree at a local business, church or other site. Grab a tag and bring back the requested item unwrapped to your Angel Tree site.
The Salvation Army will also accept toys through Monday, Dec. 19 at its distribution center at 1832 S. Division Avenue in Grand Rapids. After that, toys may be delivered to the Salvation Army building at 1215 Fulton Street E.
Last year, with the generosity of the entire community, the Salvation Army and WOOD TV8 helped more than 1,500 families and 3,600 children wake up to the joy and magic of a gift under the tree on Christmas morning. It will take the entire community’s support again to meet the increasing needs of assistance and ensuring that no child goes without this holiday season.
