The Salvation Army and J.C. Penney have joined forces again this holiday season to give joy to even more children and seniors in need by offering businesses, churches or civic organizations the option of adopting multiple Angels through the Angel Giving Tree online program at

The annual Christmas gift drive provides toys, clothing, special-needs gifts, or other wish list items to kids and senior citizens experiencing financial hardship.

The Salvation Army expanded this annual Christmas tradition by partnering with J.C. Penney to make it easier for supporters to participate this holiday season.

In a few easy steps, customers can visit to request an Angel by ZIP code, city/state, age range and gender. An Angel who matches the criteria will be e-mailed to the customer along with a list of requested items.

The confirmation email will also include a link to view drop-off locations in the recipient's area and ship-to addresses for online orders.

The Angel Giving Tree online program enables individuals or groups to shop for an Angel online at, in J.C. Penney stores or at any retailer they choose.

In collaboration with UPS, Angel Giving Tree gifts purchased through can be shipped free of charge to a local Salvation Army collection center - putting the entire selection, shopping and delivery process at the customer's fingertips.

In order to ensure all gifts are delivered in time for Christmas, the deadline for adopting and shopping for your Angel online is Dec. 9; otherwise supporters have until Dec. 13 to purchase a jcpenney gift card.

Across the Valley of the Sun, The Salvation Army has approximately 2,600 senior and child Angels in need of adoption.
