THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The Thomasville Salvation Army is trying to give Christmas to hundreds of children. They hope to help more than 550 families, including more than 800 children, on the Angel Tree.

By teaming up with the Marines Toys for Tots, the Salvation Army hopes to deliver an unforgettable Christmas to those less fortunate in our community.

"Each child is an angel and that angel has on there their age, what size clothes they wear, and some suggested toys that kid might like. And so the community can adopt an angel and they get all that information and than they have the privilege of going and purchasing items for that kid," said Corps Officer Lt. Jonathan Howell.

Stop by the Salvation Army on Madison Avenue in Thomasville to adopt an angel. For more information visit www.salvationarmythomasville.org.
