The Baskets Have Landed!

Four thousand wooden baskets make a fairly impressive sight, even when empty. Fortunately, with the generosity of the Tulsa Area community, they won't stay that way for long!

These food baskets will be distributed to Angel Tree families when they come to pick up the Christmas gifts for their children in late December. Families will receive assorted canned goods, bread, milk, eggs and fresh fruit. Enough to make their holiday a little brighter and fix a nice holiday meal.

4000+ baskets are waiting for you to fill them!
But in order to give a food basket to every Angel Tree family, we need your help. Canned food drives as well as monetary donations to buy the fresh items, will help us fill the baskets! More than 4,000 needy families are already registered with the Angel Tree program and are counting on us, us all, to help make their Christmas brighter.

If you or your group-- business, church, civic group, Scout Troop, book club, etc.-- would like to get more information on how you can help fill the baskets, contact:

Also, spread the good word! Share this blog post with your social network and follow us on Facebook or Twitter, to stay connected with the Salvation Army this holiday season! Lots of exciting activities, volunteer opportunities and announcements coming your way!
