This year there are more than 53,000 names on Salvation Army Angel Trees across Dallas-Fort Worth. Last year, Amy was one of those names waiting to be chosen. She had lost her job as an office manager and worried about what Christmas was going to be like for her children.
Amy admitted she knew there was more to the season than gifts, but it was important to her to “keep a sense of normalcy even though things are changing around you that you have no control over.” Amy called the Salvation Army Christmas Assistance Center and found out that she qualified for help.
Amy was able to pick up gifts for her children Destiny, 11, and Dylan, 9 just before Christmas. Not limited to the holidays, the Salvation Army has been in service for 125 years and offers programs year-round that include, helping the homeless, addiction recovery and more.
