Thousands of children across Virginia will experience the joy of opening presents on Christmas morning thanks to generous donors and the help of The Salvation Army Angel Tree Program that started 40 years ago in Lynchburg by Salvation Army officers Lt. Cols. Charles and Shirley White.

“The Angel Tree program provides toys and clothing to children, seniors, and families experiencing financial hardship,” said Captain Trey Jones with The Salvation Army of Greater Lynchburg. “Angels are available for adoption by community members and businesses, who in a small way will deliver the magic and message of Christmas to those in need.”

Decorated with paper angels representing the wishes of local children or seniors in need, Angel Trees are located at River Ridge Mall and area businesses.
