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.

You can also be a part of the community Christmas solution by shopping online or donating directly to the SAKC.

Toys donated from the 2021 Angel Tree Toy Drive.

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.
