MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Salvation Army in Meridian has its Angel Tree preparations in full swing, offering people the chance to share with others less fortunate by providing presents, clothing and food to over 450 children and seniors in need for Christmas.

Meridian’s Commanding Officer Lt. Roy Fisher said the agency is preparing for an increase in requests for service.

“We are already seeing a greater number of our neighbors experiencing economic insecurity. Christmas demands and expectations can be overwhelming for families experiencing financial and housing stress and uncertainty. We are committed to serving these families at Christmas, helping children experience the magic of Christmas, and reducing the anxiety for parents trying to provide food and presents during the holiday season,” said Fisher.

The rest of the 2022 Angel Tree sign-up schedule, by appointment only, is below:
Angel Tree – October 10-12 from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. and October 13 from 1 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Newton County – October 20, 2022, from 10 a.m. – 12 noon
