Recognizing that every child deserves to feel the joy of Christmas, The Salvation Army Angel Tree program provides toys to children and families who are in need each year.

Once a child is accepted as an Angel, donors can shop for their Christmas wish list. Simply visit PortlandAngelTree.org and make your gift to a child in the Portland Metro area today. Once the gifts are received, The Salvation Army will distribute them to families in need for Christmas morning.
