RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - NBC12 and Salvation Army are teaming up once again this holiday season to help spread Christmas cheer to children across the Richmond area.

The Angel Tree is a holiday tradition thousands of central Virginians participate in every year.

For many families, adopting an Angel is a wonderful way to share the spirit of the season with others in our community who are less fortunate.

Each Angel represents a real child in our community who needs your help.

Angel Pick-up Locations:

  • Short Pump Town Center
  • Chesterfield Towne Center
  • Wegmans (both locations)
  • Marco’s Pizza (all locations)

Angel Drop-off Locations:

  • Page Auto
  • Audi Richmond
  • Great Big Greenhouse
  • Christmas Center
  • Mechanicsville Toyota
  • West Broad Volkswagen

“One of the amazing things about our community is that the community always rise[s] to the occasion,” Captain Jason Burns told NBC12. “So, while it seems like there is always a challenge, our community always responds to that.”

Burns says the Salvation Army served just over 4,500 families last year, but they’re expecting a bigger turnout this year.

Participating families can pick up their gifts between Dec. 14 and Dec. 16.

The organization is in need of volunteers for ringing the bells and helping sort gifts. Click/tap here for more information.
