BANGOR, Maine — The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program hopes to provide toys for more than 1,500 Bangor area children this Christmas. Tags can be found in Macy’s Court at Bangor Mall and at the JC Penney store.

“We’ve had a good number of tags taken already, but there are many more still available,” said Capt. Tim Clark, corps officer of the Bangor Salvation Army, in  a press release. “Through our Angel Trees at the Bangor Mall, individuals and groups from throughout the community are able to provide for these children. It is a way to connect those who need help with those who want to lend a hand, providing an opportunity for people to give back tothe community in a very practical sense.”

The Angel Tree tags hav a drawing of an angel girl or angel boy and the Salvation Army’s red shield on them. Individuals purchase the item listed on the tag and return it to the tree at the Mall or to the Salvation Army office at 65 South Park St. The Salvation Army then gives the gifts to the parents for their children to open on Christmas morning.
