Angel Tree kicks off in Tupelo

TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) –  This year’s Angel Tree is now ready inside the Mall at Barnes Crossing in Tupelo.

The Salvation Army’s program helps families in need by giving gifts to local children. 

Community members adopt the “angels” for the Christmas season, giving them special gifts they have wished for. 

Right now, you can adopt a name from the tree and return the gifts by Dec. 9. 

Volunteers will sort and organize the gifts that will be distributed ahead of Christmas. 

Sizes for clothing and a wish-list are included for all of the angels.
