(KFSM) — As the holiday season draws nearer, it calls for the return of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.

The program starts Wednesday (Nov. 18) at 18 locations in the River Valley and Northwest Arkansas.

The Angel Tree program relies on community support to provide new clothing, toys and food for thousands of needy children in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley.  Trees at the different are decorated with Angel Tags,  which contain a child’s first name, age, gender and gift wishes.

Contributors can remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase the appropriate gifts for the child described on the tag.  Then they can simply attach the tag to the  gifts and return it to the location where they picked up the tag.

In addition to the gifts, the Salvation Army will also be providing food for each family in the program.
