Here is what you saw on Good Day Alabama for December 6, 2012:
JEH JEH - Jeh Jeh joined us this morning with Gifts for Kids Angel Tree! The "Gifts for Kids Angel Tree" program is a way for people to donate Christmas gifts to foster children and children in need during the holiday season. You can either supply the gifts yourself or you can donate cash to the Salvation Army who will then use that money to buy clothing and toys for children on their Angel Tree list. There are several ways you can help:
1) Adopt an angel. Fill out the form below or visit the Colonial Brookwood Village from November 16 until December 8 to adopt an angel from the Salvation Army Angel Tree. Instructions will be emailed back to you on how to fulfill the adoption. 2) Drop off a gift. If you are dropping off a gift for a specific angel(s) you adopted, follow the instructions provided or visit birminghamsalvationarmy.org for instructions. If you wish to drop off a new, unwrapped gift for any child, you can do so at any area Chick-Fil-A restaurants or Lowe's Home Improvement stores. Visit birminghamsalvationarmy.org for more information. 3) Donate online. Visit www.BirminghamSalvationArmy.org to donate online to the Angel Tree program, volunteer, or host a drive.
