The Salvation Army Spreads Holiday Cheer to Hundreds of El Pasoans

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- In a heartwarming effort to brighten the holiday season for those in need, The Salvation Army distributed Christmas gifts to a record-breaking 594 applicants this year through its Angel Tree program.

The beneficiaries include families and seniors who have eagerly anticipated this festive assistance.

The annual Angel Tree program, initiated by The Salvation Army, sees families registering for Christmas assistance as early as October.

Generous donors, moved by the spirit of giving, join the cause in November, providing an array of toys and clothes for those less fortunate. This year's program goes above and beyond, reaching out to seniors residing in assisted-living facilities and nursing homes, ensuring that the festive spirit is extended to every corner of the community.

The Salvation Army delivered over 7,000 toys and 200 bikes to deserving families and seniors.

The comprehensive assistance package includes toys, clothes, a food box, and a turkey, providing a complete Christmas experience for each recipient.

Volunteers from the community eagerly participate in the gift distribution, expressing their joy at witnessing the excitement of parents receiving these thoughtful gifts.

The event, which has become a favorite among local volunteers, serves as a testament to the power of community-driven initiatives in spreading joy and warmth during the holiday season.
