OKLAHOMA CITY – The Salvation Army needs help providing a Christmas for hundreds of Oklahoma children.

The deadline for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program is just one week away, but they are struggling to find generous Oklahomans who are willing to adopt an angel from the tree.

Currently, there are almost 800 angels who have not been adopted and there are almost 3,000 angels who have not been returned with their gifts.

“Every angel tag represents someone in our community who is in need,” said Major Charlotte Gargis, associate area commander of The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma. “The Angel Tree is an amazing opportunity for us all to share the blessings we have received with others who are lacking this Christmas.”

The angel trees are located at Quail Springs Mall and Penn Square Mall.

The deadline to return the angels with gifts is Dec. 10.
