How are Angels selected?
The children selected by the Salvation Army for the Angel Tree come from families receiving public assistance in Richmond City and the surrounding counties, or receiving services from one of 75 partnering non-profit agencies, or who qualify financially through open enrollment at the Salvation Army.
What if the clothing size for my child doesn’t seem correct?
The information on the Angel ornaments is provided by the parents or guardians of the child. Please use the information provided as a guideline when purchasing clothing.
How much money should I spend on my Angel gifts?
The amount of money you spend is completely at your discretion.
Do I have to purchase everything listed on my Angel?
Each Angel represents a real child and each Angel is only placed on the tree once. You do not have to purchase everything listed however your child will only receive what you give to them. Consider going in with a co-worker or friend and adopting an Angel together so that you can purchase all items listed.
Do I wrap my Angel's gifts?
No. Please do not wrap your Angel's gifts. Once the gifts arrive at the Christmas Center volunteers must review and process. Gift wrapping will only get damaged. You may include wrapping paper or gift bags with your gifts. Please do make sure that each gift or bag of gifts is clearly labeled with the recipient’s Angel tag or number (feel free to make a copy of the Angel tag for this purpose).
Why do some of the Angels have brown hair and some have blond hair?
Brown haired Angels represent boys. Blond haired Angels represent girls. The hair color does not indicate race of the child.
What do the numbers on my Angel tag represent?
The numbers indicate that this Angel is part of a family that has multiple children participating in the program. For example, “1 of 3” means that this is the first child in a family with three children. There is only one Angel per child, so therefore you are the only volunteer who is buying gifts for your Angel.
Simply select your special Angel off the tree, shop for your child and then return your unwrapped gifts to the participating mall locations. The drop-off date is Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013.
