Angel Tree toys desperately needed

Salvation Army Christmas dinner

Sponsors receive a wish list from the family they adopt, and gifts can be dropped off at Gene Butman Ford, 510 N. Hewitt Road, Ypsilanti, on December 18 and 19.

"A lot of the really incredible things we got this morning were teen gifts, so gift cards, earbuds, iTunes, movie passes, sport equipment, everything we need for teens", said Patty Lou Bryant, communications coordinator for the non-profit.

This season marks the 12th consecutive year the Detroit Red Wings and The Salvation Army have teamed up through the "Red Wings for Red Kettles" initiative to help the nonprofit reach its $7.85 million Red Kettle Campaign goal.

Because of an urgent need for toys, the Salvation Army will have angels available for adoption from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. Friday at the Walmart on Highway 80 in Pearl.

During this event, you can take an Angel from the tree and purchase items on the list or drop off financial donations. "Now, we're looking like we might exceed what we brought in a year ago".

"We are humbly asking for the community's help to get us back on track", said Grant Holloway, leader of the Brainerd Lakes Salvation Army, in a news release.

THE Isle of Wight Council and the Salvation Army are calling for volunteers to help the homeless this winter.

The volunteers man most of the Red Kettles at stores and other locations, issuing holiday greetings to encourage people to make donations. Homelessness is devastating; people die on the streets every year.
