Around 1,500 Harrison County children were signed up to participate in the Angel Tree Program and gifts for only about 400 children have been received so far. The Salvation Army is scheduled to drop off presents for families starting tomorrow. The Salvation Army hopes today and tomorrow will see large amounts of donations. Beth Sturidivant, the Associate Area Commander for the Salvation Army, says, "Today is the deadline. This is the least I have ever gotten back in this amount of time, so we are hoping we have a snow storm and angels returning today. With Thanksgiving being late, we are hoping people are just behind on their shopping, so we are hoping many, many get returned today." The Salvation Army says they did receive six pallets of toys this morning, but they are urging people to return with gifts for the families.
