A cause you want to get behind

ORLANDO, Fla. – The News 6 phone bank on Giving Tuesday raised $32,640 for the Salvation Army to help Central Florida families in need have a happy holiday.

News 6 teamed up with the nonprofit by hosting a phone bank to help support families through the Angel Tree Campaign.

More than 3,400 hundred children and seniors have been adopted through The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program.

Funds will be used to buy gifts for those angels who weren’t adopted to make sure they still have a merry Christmas.
