The Salvation Army Angel Tree Campaign started on Friday.

They say the purpose of the program is to make a Christmas wish come true for thousands of local deserving children.

According to Major Debra Ashcraft, “The Salvation Army begins this year’s campaign with over five thousand children. That number is expected to increase as applications are still being processed.”
