The Christmas Angel program began in 1986 and in the first year, served 3,200 underprivileged children. More than 20 years later, the program serves more than 48,000 children each holiday season, making it the largest Christmas Angel Program in the country. Since its inception, participants have generously donated more than one million toys for 500,000 underprivileged children.
But every year there are Angels that are forgotten. Tags are taken off the tree but their gifts are never returned. Each year 3TV and The Salvation Army make a commitment to ensure that every child represented by a Christmas Angel tag will have a gift. This year, Today's Patio is joining their efforts and collecting donations on behalf of the Forgotten Angel program.
The Forgotten Angel program encourages participants to donate money or a new, unwrapped toy that will go directly to The Salvation Army to fulfill the wishes of those children whose tags don't get returned. Your gift will help bring smiles to those who need them most.
