ORLANDO, Fla. – News 6 and Seacoast Bank are 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 on Christmas morning.

The program kicks off Nov. 9 with 5,000 angels up for adoption. This year, 4,000 angels represent a child ranging from infants to 14 year olds in Orange and Osceola counties. The other 1,000 angels are seniors who might not have a Christmas if it were not for donations.

To keep everyone safe, you can adopt your Angel virtually this year and in person at participating locations.

To adopt virtually:

1. Visit SalvationArmyOrlando.org and click on the Angel Tree tab from the menu bar.

2. Click the “Adopt an Angel” button to be re-routed directly to the angel adoption site for Orange and Osceola counties.

3. Sort through a variety of Angels and select the one(s) you wish to adopt.

4. Select from one of the three drop-off locations. (Even if you plan to deliver or drop off your gifts.)

5. Print Tag/Adoption Confirmation.

To adopt in person:

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 participating Walmart stores.

You can also return your gifts or have them ship directly to the Salvation Army at these addresses:

  • The Salvation Army Orlando , 416 W. Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL 32804
  • The Salvation Army Kissimmee, 700 Union Street, Kissimmee, FL 34741

*Must be addressed to C/O of The Salvation Army Orlando and include the angel’s name and ID number.

  • If you would like to drop off your gifts in person, you can do that at these locations:
  • The Salvation Army Orlando, 416 W Colonial Drive Orlando, FL 32804 (M- F 8:30a to 4:30p)
