Local Salvation Army gives over 494 families Christmas assistance

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Christmas is just a week away.

However, many families in Bowling Green are not always able to afford one.

But with the community’s help, the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides gifts to families.

Which is what happened this morning at the Angel Tree Distribution Center.

Families arrived to the sounds of Christmas music by the Salvation Army Brass Ensemble.

Afterward was a ribbon cutting by Major Stephen Story, Mayor Bruce Wilkerson, and Warren County Judge Mike Buchanon.

All to demonstrate to those in need that they are cared for.

Over 494 families are seeking help with clothing and toys for their children this Christmas.

But through donations and support from community leaders, those families will have their needs met and a Christmas to remember.

Nearly 1,000 children will wake up to gifts they can call their own.

Proving that there are many angels living right here in our city.
