There were many happy families outside the old Crossgate Academy school at 3102 East Grand on Friday. They were there for the Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Angel Tree distribution. Major Jonathan McBride of the Salvation Army stated, ” We have gotten great response from the public this year. Everyone that signed up for the tree got great gifts for their children 12 and under.” There were plenty of volunteers from the community on hand to help. McBride concluded, “Our volunteer program was very strong this year.” If you want to volunteer your help in one of the many Salvation Army’s programs, please call Susan Kelley at 501.623.1628.
