Angels are still in need in Alcorn County.

The Salvation Army is reaching out to the community for help in providing for children on their annual Angel Tree.

“We still have children who need to be adopted,” said Corinth Salvation Army Service Center Manager Michelle Miles.

She said there are quite a few children on this year’s tree that have not been provided for and they’re asking for help to make sure Christmas is bright for these kids.

Those interested in helping should call the Salvation Army at 662-287-6979 beginning Monday to get information on a child or children they can help.

Each donor is asked to provide three outfits of clothing, shoes, socks and a jacket, along with toys as presents. Miles said this will ensure the children have enough new clothing for a week of school as well as something exciting under the tree.

Miles said those wishing to help are encouraged to adopt a child or children from their list. Donations of clothing, shoes socks and toys are also welcomed to help meet the need.
