The Salvation Army needs the help of the community.

Twenty-eight names still remain on the agency's annual Angel Tree. Those children are in danger of not having anything for Christmas unless individuals step in to help.

"We have had a great success of those already adopted," said Salvation Army Director Michelle Miles. "They have been blessed and we want those remaining 28 children to have the same feeling."

The deadline to adopt the 100 children on the tree was Dec. 17. Individuals have until Dec. 23 to supply Christmas for the remaining kids.

"What these children receive during the adoption will be all the Christmas they get," added Miles. "I don't want 28 children waking up on Christmas without having something."

Those interested can go by the agency at 2200 Lackey Drive in Corinth to get a name of a child.

"We need them adopted by Monday at the latest," said the director. "The community has always stepped up when they realize there is a need."

The annual Angel Tree was located at Walmart since early December. The child's name along with clothing sizes and particular toy desired were placed on the tree in the form of a Christmas-type ornament.

Another seven names also are still left on the agency's first Golden Angel Tree. The Golden Angel Tree was started this year to assist elderly citizens during the Christmas season.

(To adopt a child or elderly citizen call the Salvation Army at 287-6979.)
