BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) – With holidays fast approaching programs are ramping up to help the less fortunate.

The Angel Tree program, operated by the Salvation Army of Bowling Green, opens Saturday, Nov.10 at Greenwood Mall.

“When you adopt an Angel from the Angel Tree you are partnering with us to assist families who find themselves in need during the holiday season,” said Major Sandra Story.

Each tree is adorned with angel tags containing a child's age, gender, clothing size and gift wishes. Necessities and Christmas gifts are provided for disadvantaged children from infants to age 12.

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program was created in 1979.
