Give Joy:

Angel Tree Program

There are many children on the Mississippi Gulf Coast who will not receive Christmas presents without the help and support of people like yourself.  Here at The Salvation Army, every child who needs Christmas assistance is called an Angel. When you visit a local retailer, you may choose an Angel to “adopt” and purchase new and unused presents to help make their Christmas a little brighter.  Every Angel has suggested gift ideas, but we also encourage you to be creative! Millions of children in America will go without Christmas gifts because their parents can’t afford them. Financial and emotional stress dampen the Christmas cheer of families living in poverty.

Do you need help this year providing your children with gifts?

Visit our Angel Tree webpage for more information.

Toy and Canned Good Drives

The Salvation Army collects donations of new toys and clothes that children of all ages would enjoy. This way, should any children not receive many presents or not get adopted, we always have extra presents to help make their Christmas special. Plus, we always have emergency situations where a family needs help at the last minute.

We also set up canned good locations all across the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

If you would like to become a toy or canned good drive location, please contact 228-374-8301. In Jackson County, please call 228-762-7222.
