‘We’re in a bit of a frantic pace’; unclaimed Angel Tree Tags

KTUL - December 17, 2023 2:06 pm

Salvation Army Tulsa says there’s an urgent need for toys ahead of the holidays.

This year the need for help is higher with almost 6,000 Green Country families in need of help. Unfortunately, with rising inflation donations have slowed.

Time is running out and the Salvation Army is making sure to get the word out.

There are still 600 Angel Tree Tags that are unclaimed, and each one represents a Green Country child in need, and of those that were claimed nearly 300 have not been dropped back off.

“If you still have your angel tag and you haven’t shopped, shop today and return it today they are depending on you for their Christmas,” Major Charlotte Gargis, Salvation Army Tulsa area commander, said. “We cannot neglect any of our angels so please respond”.

Help fulfill thousands of holiday wishes for children in need, who may otherwise wake up to an empty stocking and Christmas tree.

Those parents depend on the Salvation Army, and the Salvation Army depends on the community’s generosity.

If you can purchase a few extra toys, or even just one, to donate and bring to the Salvation Army today, it will help bring holiday cheer to children across Green Country.

The Salvation Army is looking for new, unwrapped toys for newborns to children 12 years old, but if you can’t make it out to buy a gift you can also make a cash donation.

Anything you can contribute will help make the holiday a little brighter for a child in need.

Distribution day is Dec. 19, so Dec. 18 is the absolute deadline to drop things off and ensure no child is forgotten.
