Holiday Opportunities - Holiday Toy and Meal Distribution Team

Activity Summary:

We are looking for Distribution Team Members!

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program is a very large and significant part of our annual Red Kettle Campaign. It is a thriving program where we work alongside individuals, churches, schools and corporations to provide toys to children in the community to open on Christmas Day. The Angel Tree Program preparations and distribution typically runs from the Friday before Thanksgiving, until Christmas Eve. 

As a part of the Angel Tree Program, we need to arrange special toy shops where we organize and wrap the donated toys, as well as work closely with the community.

We also will need help handing out Food Boxes to local families so they have a meal to prepare together Christmas day!
