Salvation Army begins annual Angel Tree program

HATTIESBURG, MS -

The Salvation Army is kicking off its annual Angel Tree program. 

Registration and sign ups began Monday. 

Lt. Stacey Connelly said workers will be at the Salvation Army on Helveston Road on Friday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Angel Tree program helps needy families with assistance during the holiday season, and organizers said the process to give a child a "Merry Christmas" is very simple.

“You can take an angel off the tree," Connelly said. "It'll have the child's name. It'll have the child's information and you can just grab that right off the tree, shop for them while you're even doing your grocery shopping and drop it off at the end."

The sign ups are for children ages one to 12.

Here is a list of the locations:

Oct. 5-8, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Salvation Army 5670 US Highway 49

Oct. 9, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. at the Salvation Army 5670 US Hwy 49
