The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program will begin on Friday, November 29 at the two Quad City shopping Malls. Community members are asked to pick a child's name from the tree and purchase a toy, so a less fortunate child will have a happy Christmas morning. This annual holiday program provides new toys for approximately 3,000 children whose families are having a hard time adding Christmas gifts to their budget.

On Black Friday, November 29, Macerich--which operates NorthPark and SouthPark malls will again partner with The Salvation Army and collect new, unwrapped toys inside the malls at the "Angel Trees." Hours will be 11am - 8pm Monday through Saturday, and 12pm - 5pm on Sunday.

Paper angel tags listing the age, gender and toy ideas are available at these locations: Younkers Court in SouthPark Mall, Moline; and JCPenney Court in NorthPark Mall, Davenport. Anyone wanting to participate can select an angel tag from the tree and purchase a gift for a child. New, unwrapped toys for a child, along with the original tag can be returned to any Angel Tree location. The last day you can choose an angel is Dec. 15 to allow time for distribution by The Salvation Army.
