Join A1 Orange in Making Christmas Special
for Deserving Children
From Orlando, Jacksonville & Tampa through
The Salvation Army’s Angel Christmas Tree Program!
Each Christmas season, The Salvation Army identifies deserving children, and then makes these “Angels” available for adoption through groups such as A1 Orange. This is A1’s 13th year with the Angel program, and due to your enthusiastic support last year, we’ve committed to 100 Angels from Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa.
How can you participate in A1 Orange’s Angel Drive for The Salvation Army?
- Adopt an Angel — When you adopt one of The Salvation Army’s Angels, you agree to purchase gifts and a couple of clothing items for a specific child. The child’s gift wish list and sizes are provided to you.
- Make a Donation & We’ll Do the Shopping for You! — Purchasing gifts and clothing for one Angel costs about $100, but your donation can be in any amount, and we’ll purchase Christmas list items for Angels with your donation. Send a check with “Angels” in the memo area or enclose a sticky or note with your check.
If you choose to shop for your Angel’s gifts, how doe’s this work? In early November, you’ll get an “Angel Card” for each child you adopt, including the child’s first name, gender, age and sizes. Most people purchase a toy for each child as well as an outfit, pajamas, underwear, shoes and socks. There is no set amount, but the average is $75/100+ per child. (Bargain shoppers may do better!)
- The child’s age and sex, and
- Location – Orlando, Jacksonville or Tampa.
