TULSA - Over 600 angels are still available for adoption in the Tulsa area, Salvation Army officials announced Saturday.
Officials said 5,731 children have been selected to receive donations so far at Woodland Hills Mall and Promenade Mall.
Shoppers can ‘adopt’ an angel by stopping at an Angel Tree and talking to a volunteer about the age and gender of the person they want to adopt, officials said. Then they buy the gifts requested on the Angel tag and take them back to the mall by Dec. 12.
Along with the Angel gifts, the Salvation Army gives the families groceries that will feed a family of four about a week.
Those who wish to donate can visit salvationarmy.org or text the word JOY to 85944 to make a one-time $10 donation to the Salvation Army Tulsa Area Command. The donation will be billed to your mobile phone bill.
