Salvation Army seeking volunteers

Salvation Army bell ringers

OKLAHOMA CITY—If you are not in a position to give to those less fortunate this year, you may be able to give up a bit of your time.

The Salvation Army is asking for community volunteers to help organize and load boxes for the Angel Tree distribution at Crossroads Mall.

Volunteers will sort through 4,000 gifts that will be given to the elderly and children in need.

“This is a wonderful time of year to give back to those in need,” said Maj. Francina Proctor, with The Salvation Army Oklahoma Area Command. “We welcome anyone 16 years and older to help sort toys, clothing and other items to ensure our families have a meaningful holiday.”

From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., guests can help load boxes each day this week through Saturday, Dec. 15 and Monday, Dec. 17.

Volunteers will also be needed on Dec. 18 through Dec. 20 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to distribute gifts to families.

Those interested are encouraged to sign up by emailing lois_green@uss.salvationarmy.org.
