LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The last day to adopt an angel from The Salvation Army of Laurel is Friday. The organization said there are still plenty of angels left on the tree that need to be adopted.
If you would like to help a child who otherwise might not have anything for Christmas, you have Thursday and Friday left to do so. Angels can be adopted at Sawmill Square Mall or at The Salvation Army located on North 13th Avenue.
"If people can't adopt an angel we're encouraging individuals to just swing by with a toy preferably it's our older children that are in need," said Lieutenant Stacey Connelly. "Basketball, footballs, coats for girls, makeup, accessories, earrings, jewelry, things like that."
The deadline to return the angel gifts is also Friday. The gifts will be distributed December 19.
