"The reason that we do it that way is because we do a toy and joy shop. So once the toys come in, then we set them up based on age group and then when the families come through they pick toys for their children and that gives them some choice and empowers the families," says Maj. John Stennett of the Salvation Army.
There are over 3000 angel tags scattered across the Treasure Valley right now. If you want to give a child a toy this season you are asked to leave it unwrapped.
The Salvation Army only accepts new toys for the Angel Giving tree, so no hand-me-downs in this program. If you want to host an angel tree at your company it's not too late to call the Salvation Army.
