Calling All Angels: Please Help Local Families with the Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree By December 13!

Dec 10, 2010

In keeping with the spirit of giving back, we want you to be someone’s angel this Christmas! Our hotel is hosting A Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree to benefit local families – and we need angels! To learn how you can help make someone’s holiday brighter, please come by our lobby or contact us at 866-968-5757.  Pick up a tag for a child, shop for them and drop their unwrapped gift off here at the hotel by Monday December 13 (hurry!) Once toys are collected, we will deliver them to The Salvation Army.

Who Do the Angel Trees Help? Families with incomes of no more than 130% of established poverty levels are encouraged to make an application with The Salvation Army for holiday assistance for food and toys. They screen these families with other organizations to do their best to make sure there is no duplication. Last year Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree program served approximately 4,622 families with a total of 8,749 children in the tri-county metro area (Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas).

Each family received food and at least two age appropriate toys per child. When we don’t have enough toy donations, they must purchase toys so that no child goes without. These purchases are made with funds that are needed for other emergency assistance throughout the year. This is why it is so important for The Salvation Army to develop these partnerships that help us to meet these needs and stretch our dollars as far as possible. Your toy donation will make a real difference for a child in need.
