This week, about 260 Angel Tree tags were hung in several retail businesses locally to encourage community members to provide a few items for a child in need this Christmas.

Participating locations this year include Walmart, Zesto, Capitol, Lincoln University and Kmart.

Clothing and gifts for the Angel Tree may be dropped off at the store where the tag was picked up or at The Salvation Army, 927 Jefferson St. Deadline is Dec. 9.

In addition to the traditional shoppers, people buying online may visit the JCPenney website.

Then those items will be displayed in the Toy Shop along with other community donations, including the Marine Corps League’s Toys for Tots.
