BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The true impact of the Great Recession is tough to measure. Americans have lost money, jobs and homes. These same families who are struggling to meet the financial demands of day-to-day life question how they might provide a gift or two for their children on Christmas Day.
Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. But, that’s not always the case – so the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program in Bangor is hoping to help provide gifts for needy families.
Soon there will be an Angel Tree located in the Bangor mall at Macy’s Court. Angel Trees are decorated with angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child in need of presents. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.
