Christmas is right around the corner, and every year, the Salvation Army partners with Tullahoma City Schools and local businesses to ensure every child in need receives gifts. On November 2nd, from 10 am-2 pm, any school-aged child who attends Tullahoma City Schools can sign up for the Angel Tree to receive Christmas presents. The location will be at The First Christian Church Annex building in downtown Tullahoma at 201 NW Atlantic St. Please bring a photo ID with the correct Tullahoma address and a current utility bill or lease. The addresses must match. The gifts must be picked up by the registered families on December 14th, 9 am-12 pm and 1 pm-3 pm at The First Christian Church Annex building. Last year, around 300 gifts were distributed to local children and families. If local businesses would like to participate, please contact Sue Larmoyeux at 931-455-2200 or Ashley Abraham at Director@highway55unitedway.org.
From ages birth to 14 years old, children can participate in The Tullahoma Fire Department Toy Drive. The deadline for Toy and Cash Donations is Dec 15. Sign-ups for the toy distribution are on Dec 1 and 2 from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. at CD Stamps (810 S Jackson St, Tullahoma). Distribution of Toys is on Dec 23rd at 10 am. Place TBD. Each guardian must bring the child’s birth certificate and proof of Tullahoma residency (TUA bill, picture ID, etc). They are also requesting the parents/guardians last 5 digits of their SSN. Contact The Tullahoma Fire Dept to learn more and contribute. The Salvation Army is appreciative of local businesses and Tullahoma City Schools for supporting the Angel Tree program every year. During this Holiday season, let’s work together to ensure no child is left without the magic of Christmas.
