The Salvation Army is helping kids have a better Christmas

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The Salvation Army is currently having its Angel Tree, which allows folks to give less fortunate kids a better Christmas by adopting them.

However, things are getting a little nerve-wracking.

Salvation Army Captain, Stacey Connelly said, "We are struggling this year. This is the first time in five years that we are approaching the deadline and we still have over 200 angels left to be adopted."

The Salvation Army has 1200 angels and only about 1,000 have been adopted so far.

December 15 is the deadline, but The Salvation Army has faith that every angel will have a merry Christmas.

"No one wants to imagine a child without Christmas on Christmas morning. But, we're trusting in God and believing in the people of the Pine Belt. Personally, I believe that there is someone out there who has been abundantly blessed that is going to reach out to us, and help us get those 200 children adopted out," said Connelly.
