The Spirit of Hope Kept Alive with the Salvation Army’s Christmas Angel Tree

Last season, as many as 2 thousand children received Christmas gifts under their tree, restoring some hope, and the gift-giving spirit of the holiday.

That spirit can often be hard to come by for parents who struggle to pay for the basic necessities. When you’re balancing seasonal expenses like heating fuel, warm winter clothing, and food, the thought of celebrating Christmas with the kids seems out of reach.

That’s where the Salvation Army comes in, by coordinating the generosity of others, to benefit those most in need of compassion and support.

Co-Officer of the Bangor Salvation Army, Captain Tim Clark, says parents who need support should come forward now to register their “wish list” of a toy or two, and clothing items and sizes.

“We actually put that information on an Angel Tree tag and then individuals from the community can take that tag, go shopping for that child, then they return the items to our tree in the Bangor Mall, then we make sure the gifts that were purchased for that child actually go to that child,” explains Captain Clark.

Captain Clark says to receive support from the Salvation Army Angel Tree program folks need to live within the service area which includes, Bangor, Brewer, Levant, Exeter, Glenburn, Hermon, Orrington, Kenduskeag, and Veazie.

You need to call and schedule an appointment, be able to show proof of residency, and proof of dependency for the child or children for whom you’re requesting assistance.

The Bangor Salvation Army number is (207) 941-2990 for scheduling appointments.
