Hattiesburg Salvation Army to distributes packages Wednesday

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

On Wednesday, parents will pick up bundles of toys from Hattiesburg's Salvation Army to tuck under their Christmas trees.

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree distribution starts Wednesday morning at eight. The army's Development Director Katie Tate says the last appointment is 2 p.m. The army will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday for parents who can't make the 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. appointment times tomorrow.

Tate added all 2,008 of the angels were adopted. There are some who haven't been dropped off at the army, so Tate urges those who adopted an angel to drop them off today. Finally, Tate says parents need to remember to bring their green appointment card.

Also, parents will be able to pick out a book to go along with those angel tree toys. The "Give a Child a New Book" initiative collected more than 3,600 books. This exceeds last year's total. The books were collected from the greater Hattiesburg area and the Gulf Coast.
