AS REPORTED IN THE LUFKIN DAILY NEWS:
The holiday season typically proves to be a busy time for the staff and volunteers from the Salvation Army as they take care of local needs.
With a new pair of leaders guiding two of the organization’s largest projects, Capt. John Branscum and his wife Christina are ready for the challenge.
Branscum said the annual Angel Tree project is already under way. The application process has been completed with 1,200 “angels” waiting to be adopted.
“You can adopt a child or a senior citizen to meet a specific need,” Branscum said.
“Most folks who come in just ask for clothing. They are very humble about it. We also ask them to tell us something the child would want for Christmas.”
Anyone who adopts an angel must bring their purchases by the Salvation Army, located at 412 S. Third St., to be supported and distributed.
