‘It’s the most giving time of year’: News 6 launches annual Angel Tree program

WKMG partners with Salvation Army to bring holiday cheer to neighbors in need

ORLANDO, Fla. – News 6 is teaming up with the Salvation Army for the annual Angel Tree Program.

It's a way to spread holiday cheer and make sure children and seniors around Central Florida wake up to gifts Christmas morning.

The program kicks off Nov. 15 with 4,000 angels up for adoption. This year, 3,000 angels represent a child ranging from infants to 14-year-olds. The other thousand angels are seniors who might not have a Christmas if it were not for donations.

Donors can choose to adopt an angel from locations across Central Florida, including News 6, the Mall at Millenia, participating Chick-fil-A restaurants and the I-Drive District.

Gifts should be returned to the location the angel was picked up from by Dec. 6.

Participants can pick up their angel at the following locations:
