Salvation Army to Distribute Thousands of Gifts to Kids in Need


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — More than 2,000 children in need will receive Christmas gifts distributed by the Salvation Army Monday.

It’s thanks to the community’s generous role in the  organizations Angel Tree program.

Parents of children in need apply for the gifts, give the Salvation Army clothing sizes and three wishes. 

The program will then write these wishes down and hang it on a paper angel in hopes someone in the community will purchase them. 

Salvation Army Capt. Ashley Robinett said they’ve received a variety of donations, from bikes to dolls and kitchen sets. 

“We rely heavily on the donors and the people of the community to support the kids who are in need at Christmas time who are without gifts and they do just a fantastic job,” Robinett said.

Robinett said she’s been in other communities, but noticed that it’s here in Northwest Arkansas where people really have the heart to give to people in need.
