15 emergency angels still need adopted

Final preparations underway ahead of Angel Tree distribution day

The Angel Tree program at Roanoke’s Salvation Army program is a huge success in 2023. Tesa Price, with Roanoke Salvation Army said all 1,200 angels have been adopted. Angels were adopted earlier than expected thanks to generosity of the community and corporate sponsors.

”I walk around with a grin ear to ear knowing that 1,200 kids... that’s 1,200 happy mornings for Christmas. Roanoke really came through and did it,” Price said. " It’s amazing!”
