You can adopt angels and donate gifts through The Salvation Army Angel Tree - Nov. 10 to December 6 - at the following participating malls.

Anyone who wants to volunteer at the kettles can call Amy at the Salvation Army at 519-354-1430. Hargis said only 50 of the angels have been returned with their Christmas wishes.

The tree has angel ornaments with the name of Cenla children in need and three items they would like for Christmas.

"The average cost of adopting an angel can be anywhere between $75 and $100".

"Every little bit helps us as we try to help our community, but that little bit of change really adds up". "But we are just glad to have it back". In lieu of flowers, the family asked people to bring toys to donate to the Angel Tree. The campaign needs the support of the county's corporate residents, however, after several partners have backed out of their involvement this year. We help millions and millions of families.

10 and continues until Saturday, Dec. 23.

Salvation Army officials estimate the volunteer had collected about $500 in the red kettle before the theft.
