(SAN BERNARDINO, CA) It might seem like a very small gesture, but participating in The Salvation Army’s Giving Tree will make this season memorable for children in need.
“Just pick up a Angel Giving Tree tag and buy a needy child the gift listed on the tag! The Angel Giving Tree matches donors with hundreds of children who are relying on The Salvation Army this year to bring them a Merry Christmas,” said Major Daniel Henderson, Corps officer for the San Bernardino Salvation Army.
The San Bernardino Corps already has plans to set up two Angel Giving Trees this year, one at Inland Center Mall, and the other at the Wal-Mart store on Hallmark Parkway. Donations received here help The San Bernardino Salvation Army Corps provide toys to children from 600 disadvantaged families in San Bernardino, Rialto, Highland, Grand Terrace, Colton, Fontana and Bloomington.
“You can support our Giving Tree by visiting our table in the Inland Center Mall from Friday, November 27th to December 24th,” said Major Henderson.
Shoppers wishing to participate in the Giving Tree will find cards attached to the Giving Tree. These cards include the names and wish lists of needy children whose families cannot afford to buy gifts. Shoppers simply pluck a tag off the Giving Tree and head for the appropriate store to purchase their gift donations. Shoppers keep the card as an ornament to hang on their own Christmas tree, reminding them of their good deed.
“This is a great way to start a tradition with your own family, by selecting a gift for a needy child together. The gifts are based on their individual wishes and for some children, it may be the only gift they receive all year,” said Major Henderson.
“Soccer balls, dolls and clothes are just a few items on each child’s wish list,” said Major Henderson. “Shoppers who participate in the program are encouraged to shop for more than what is needed on the list. I can’t think of a better way for local people including business owners and managers to help the community and spread the spirit of Christmas.”
The Salvation Army is looking for other business owners and managers who would like to have a tree at their place of business for employees and/or customers.
To host a Giving Tree in San Bernardino, Colton, Grand Terrace, Rialto, Bloomington, Muscoy or Highland, call (909) 888-1336.
The Salvation Army Corps in other areas of the Inland Empire also collect toys. Some will have trees, while others will accept donations at their Corps headquarters.
