Salvation Army Collecting Gifts for Angel Trees

Posted: Updated:

The trees are decorated with gift tags, each one representing a child who needs a toy this Christmas.

All you have to do is choose one, pick up the toy when you're out shopping and help one of thousands of kids in need this year. "This year we are anticipating a greater need, so we were hoping more and more people could step up, take an angel off the tree, go shopping, buy that gift, and bring it back so we can make sure every child in Reno that needs help is taken care of," says Major Janene Zielinski.

The Salvation Army of Washoe County expects to serve as many as 11,000 kids this year. And they say that means they need a lot of kind-hearted donors to fit one more toy into their Christmas budgets.

They're looking for all kinds of toys, for boys and girls of all ages and the tags make it easy, because they tell you exactly what to buy like a doll house, soccer ball or even a gift card to an electronics store.

And this year-- the range of gifts is even bigger, since they're putting more emphasis on older kids than they have ever before.

"Our program this year has expanded. We're helping children all the way to age 17. So we would really enjoy having gifts that are more geared towards older children this year."
