The campaign includes the donation kettles outside department stores and the angel trees in local Wal-Marts. The Salvation Army has 497 families in need this year, including 1,400 children who need presents. Gary Sturdivant a Major for the Salvation Army, says, “Could you imagine waking up on Christmas morning and being a little child and not having a Christmas present? It hits me every year. That's a possibility and so you know, your heart just over flows for those children and we want to make sure that every child could have a few presents to open." To adopt a family, or child the trees will be in the front entrance of Wal-Marts and the toys can be turned in at the Salvation Army.
